This photographic scene depicts the life of people living in urban cities. The image shows high rise concrete buildings that are commonly densely populated by people from different backgrounds. This is a perfect example of an imperfect environment that shows the life of poverty, overly populated communities, pollution, busy streets, and hardship. The human instinct to survive and dream for the betterment of their life; the life of their loved ones and those who are left behind is all worth the sacrifice. The boy in the picture plays with all the distractions in his surroundings; he still find a moment to enjoy and fly his kite.
