If you are looking at this photo on the JPG site, mostly likely this is an image of poverty to you. However, this is an apartment block in one of the most prestigious areas of Kiev. This building looks over the national opera house. It has running water, electricity, central heat and gas more often than not.

What percentage of the world population can boast such luxuries?

So, is this an image of wealth or poverty? You decide.
