Garbage Man

Originally uploaded by lazy_urfa

I’ll admit I took this picture because I adore donkeys.. (Yes, strange, I know) poor things always seem to be much undervalued and unappreciated. But once I took this picture I realized that while my sympathies go out to animals bearing the burden of society I’d never considered how much more undervalued are the people who’re sweeping away our garbage. I was at this garbage dump fully prepared to take simple pictures of the rubbish pile but instead I found people working there sorting out our trash, living off of what we throw away.
