Images of Poverty

images of poverty in Sri Lankaimages of poverty in Sri Lankaimages of poverty in Sri LankaIn the first image, You can see a small concrete building with black plastic sheets covering one wall, then the building is extended to the right with corrugated metal (possibly asbestos?).

Notice the string of flag-looking things? That’s what makes us think this is a house. Fahim thinks that the entire building is someone’s home, whereas I thought the portion on the right was a business.

Second image – someone’s yard. You know how I can tell? The laundry hanging up. Sort of. Mostly. And the television antenna.

Third image. Laundry hung up on the line. Along the side of the road. Where vehicles drive past. Where people walk past. Because this is likely the only place they have to hang the laundry.
