Photographer's Note

Picture taken at a school in Uganda. Most of the children at this school are orphans, many of their parents the victims of the AIDS epidemic sweeping Africa.

No one could tell me the story of this little girl but she quietly followed me around the whole time I was there. I would have liked to have known...

Anyway I know that this picture is far from technically adequate. I didn't know what to do about the seats behind (they are rather distracting)- I tried some stuff and failed dismally. I thought about just cropping it out but I wanted to include the context of the school and other children. Besides, I'm hoping that someone will see it and offer me their advice....I figure that sharing mistakes is a good way of learning something new!
