homELearning Activity 2 (S1-07: 15 ElginPatt)

Picture 2b

In this picture, the taker of the picture is trying to focus on the man in the middle of the picture and he is lying down in the middle of the dirty place. The man and his child are the only people in the picture. The man and his child are both very thin and dirty and their clothes are simple and seem like they have not been washed for a long time. Also,where they are lying at is a crowded street where many other poor people also reside at. I think that the man and his child are very poor because they do not even have a proper place to live in.Or maybe they were thrown on the streets by other family members and were not allowed to go home. The messages that the photographer is trying to convey is that some people in other countries are very poor and do not have a proper place to live in whereas we should be happy that we have a place to stay in. I like it about how the photographer centers his picture on the man and his child resting as it shows that it is the main point he is trying to express. If I were the photographer, I would have zoomed in more to the picture as the background was providing a unnecessary distraction.
