A child in red with toy shopping cart

A candid shot of a baby girl in the slums of Kota Harbor, Jakarta. She lives there, near the ocean, in one of those small room built on a pile of trash... It is typical for these impoverished families to take good care of their children, as far as hygiene goes. She might never make it to school, because her parents most likely can not afford even an ID card, or daily commute. But a sense of pride remains. She wears fresh clothes every day. The laundry for tomorrow is hanging out to dry... even her toy is kept clean.
