Thanks Jen! These images were originally put in the "maybe later" pile - a pile I've recently had to mine regularly since I lost 10,000+ images this fall.

It was an interesting juxtaposition of emotions - the children were joyful and making buckets of "lemonade out of lemons" with what they had to work with - but, despite all that joy an innocence and simplicity - the scene was haunting. It never left me. And I worked with that first image until it represented the way I saw the scene when I came upon it.
