Saturday Photohunt - Thankful

The people living in the houses in these slums are Thankful for the roof over their heads. If you look closely at the top of the photograph, you will find that the roof is used to dry their clothes too! Talk about space shortage!

  3. This certainly shows the true meaning of being thankful - when you are thankful to have so little, it means so much more. THanks for sharing all parts of your world!

  6. I like the flowerbox the home in the very back has. No matter what the circumstances people will bring nature and beauty into their lives any way they can. Wonderfully done, it looks like the opening scene to a movie...

  9. Far a simple shack has a green space, a contact with nature and beauty ...
    This is for me the most important teaching but also the biggest pain in mind as there is injustice in the world ...

  27. These are people who get what thankful is about. It's not about being thankful for how much you have, it's being thankful for your ability to know it. When you have almost nothing, you appreciate everything.
