Photo taken at The Lords place Catholic Orphanage Lower Kingston Jamaica.
I recommend everyone at least do a mission trip once it's the best experience in the world.
Many people have told me that this photo would be better if it wasn't so grainy, before anyone brings that up I'll tell you the reason why it is. I was in an orphanage the majority of the people in the care of the orphanage were mentally sick, I didn't use the flash on my camera because I didn't want to startle them, in case there were people who suffered from epilepsy I didn't want the flash to cause seizures.
when taking photographs in a place like that with mentally handicapped people you have to be cautious and respectful with your camera.
This to my knowledge is a man in his mid 20's he's very frail,deformed, and in a diaper. I felt compelled to take a picture of him because he was just looking at me like take a picture of me share my story...So I did.
