Photographer's Note

Yesterday I saw this boy, a shoe polisher, doing his job at the streets of Ciudad del Este.

In the midst of the frenetic commercial activity of this city, I saw him earning his living, even at a such short age.

That is the hard and sad story of many children around the world.

In many cases they act as adults, working at the streets all day to bring some money for the house, and without assisting to school for basic education.

It is sad but true;

Concerning the photo itself, I decided to eliminate all color information, add a sephia tone with the GIMP, and add noise with PS as a final touch.

I believe this reflects better my feelings.



Ps.: This time I tried something totally different from what I have done so far in the previous postings. Specially related to the postprocessing.
