Black gold

This probably isn't an example of environmental awareness; more likely this is the harvesting of a valuable commodity. Click to enlarge photo.


  1. And an early death from cancer awaits.

  2. I think this photo speaks volumes about the differences between cultures and they way they think about things. Could you imagine being in America and seeing a mother let her child do this? Not passing judgement on either culture, just noticing that in America, a mother would probably be frowned upon for letting this occur, whereas in Hyderabad, it looks simply like they're just doing what they need to do. Very interesting photo.
