This weeks challenge by Snow from The Snow Melts Somewhere is Coralish Colours. I have bent this a little but have tried to stay on theme.
The Featured image was taken in New Zealand a few years back I have always taken a lot of flower shots, but at the time I was trying a couple of affects.
The next in a bot of stretch, but this shot was taken in Bangladesh. The boys in the shot spend all day, everyday breaking up bricks which are then fed back into the kilns and fired up into new bricks. At the time I was shocked at the use of child labour, but talking to the children I soon realised their lives were not that simple. They earnt the money for their families and it was work or the streets for them. A harsh awakening to the lives of millions every day across the subcontinent and beyond.
The next shot was taken on a epic drive we did back in 1998 in Cambodia, if you are interested, here’s the blog on that trip…
And a town house in Melaka, Malaysia.
And finally a shameless self portrait taken on the top of Mount Fansipan in Vietnam. I was wearing coral that day!
That’s China you can see in the background.
