Hard Living

Most people in Jakarta don't live in the multi-million dollar mansions or the high rise apartments you see downtown. Most live below the poverty level in these slums. The thing that always amazes me, however, is how happy and welcoming the people are in these areas. I guess they just adopt the attitude, "it is what it is", and live with it. Never do I hear a person run around being kids, and the adults do what it takes to put food on the table and a roof over their heads.

Great post of the human condition.

Not even colorful HDR can make a slum look inviting. I would like to see it with some of the techniques as your China photos.
