My Friend from the Orphanage

During my visit to the Orphanage in Jinja, Uganda this little boy asked me to spend time with him. All he wanted was to have someone's attention and a big hug. He was lovely ... so gentle. It was heartbreaking to leave him there at the end of the day and know that all he wanted was to be part of a family again.


This photo is challenging from the pool of Highly Competitive - Flickr's 100 Best - Vote me in!"


I have challenged this photo as I wanted to give an option of a photograph from a different place and a different experience. I believe that my photograph deserves vote as it captures such a beautiful child and the lighting highlights his face and in particular his facial expression.
