Photographer's Note

While walking through one of the smaller villages along the river near Hué, I got drawn to a garbage belt.
When I moved closer I noticed that this little boy was sorting through the rubbish. I stood back for a while, feeling very sensitive about the situation, wondering what the best thing to do would be.
And just at that point the boy had sensed my presence, turned around and looked me in the face with this tender, questioning, surprised, fragile and sad look.
My camera was ready in my hand so I took this shot impulsively.
Afterwards I walked towards him and he walked slowly towards me. His eyes were hopeful, but I was carrying very little on me at the time. I hope I managed to make him a little happy, but all I could feel was sadness. He surely will stay with me, that little boy, sorting garbage.

I felt this image needed a B/W approach and tried a WS, but I'm not very pleased. If you would like to try to make a good one, I would be grateful!
