OK - So this might seem like a shoehorn. But these people had possibly walked for miles and then waited in line for hours to get a chance to wait in this line to receive medical, dental, optical and benevolence help. They were weary and still had to continue on. I pulled the misquote from a wiki misquote page.

Side note - in every picture I took of the women standing in line they were always stacked like this. belly to back from the front of the line to the end.

This was from my mission trip into the mountains of Nicaragua.

Apparently this has a life of its own, independent of "There is no peace...to the wicked."

I feel like there's a story here but I can't really tell what it is. It's a pretty good shot and I like the exposure, but I find myself wanting more from the story aspect.

I think a crop just above the lad in blue's head would work better. Lovely colours and excellent emotion.

Come to think of it I can't decide whether the photo would be even better with the only child being the rather disgruntled lad in blue - he certainly looks the most hacked off and is competing a bit with the lass.

Love the colours. There's something nice going on with vertical lines here too.
