People in shacks are not homeless! Some of them are very proud of the homes they built and are living in - especially as they have very little resources. Some of those "squatter" villages have a very vibrant comunity and are happier than lots of folks in their mansions just one step ahead of the debt collectors.

Sometimes I wonder why we keep pitying these poor guys instead we should in lots of cases envy them for their resourcefulness and never say die attitudes to survive against all odds.

I have taken many pics also of people who live in such places and were often amazed at the joy some of them still have in their lives which you only realise if you communicate with them on their turf.

Did anyone else notice that the streets in the Kenya photos had very little rubbish lying around??? we have more crap strewn around our town centre (near taxi rank). and we pay taxes?????

Just because you poor doesn't mean you have no pride.

Seems to be a trend among "photographers" to take pics of homeless people, I'm not really one for that, but I took this on my phone while busy at work, I feel it tells a strong story of struggle.


this is the way the whole country is going VIVA ANC VIVA !!!! :thumleft:
