    I don’t know who’s fault it is… but it sure is a confrontation… and you captured it very nicely!

    Congratulations, Tashique, on your Photographers of RedBubble feature!

    Mother and child, dressed vividly in spite of their poverty…perhaps a glimmer of hope…lovely capture!

    Wow! A capture filled with feeling…both immediate emotion and philosophical wonder. It leaves the viewer asking about the ‘back story’. The textural and somewhat bland wall contrasts perfectly with the bold colors in the woman’s dress. Homelessness is heartwrenching and, like yourself, I wonder what twist of fate only gave me the start I had. Great job!

  • hei thanks for the amazing comment :D
