Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban
I chose this photo of a Student Nurse from Indiana Wesleyan University, taught tooth-brushing to students at school in Duhaney Park, Jamaica. The children craved attention from U.S. citizens. In this one-room school-house, there were no chalk boards, no windows and no doors. Just 4 walls and a roof. 2 walls with small openings (as seen in Photo) across from each other, 2 walls, solid stone also, across from each other, where the opening were for doors. Jamaica emulates the american class rooms. The children hung their art work from thread stretched across the room. They stuck home and art work boards on the walls of the school and on wooden panels made for the teachers. All the children were eager to take part. (I was the student nurse in that picture.)
This second photo; flooding in the city, photographed from a roof-top higher up, after Hurricane Katrina went through New Orleans. I did not take this photo. This shows how people survived. People used coolers to float personal items in and on, including food from stores. People were resourceful in getting what they needed until help arrived. Yes, some looted, some died, some stayed, some relocated and some went back home to New Orleans after being shuttled out to other parts of the U.S.
These are my “Urban” photos for this weeks Challenge. I hope you see the people how I seen them. Please feel free to comment!
