Counting Poverty

This mother and daughter pair were counting the money they were offered on the street of Lhasa when I took this picture. Poverty does have a child and woman's face. I often hear people say these days that some beggars are turning professional and earn even more than average people do. If so, I am happy for them and wish them the best of luck, for I don't believe anyone was born wishing to be a beggar.
