Scavengers of the Dump

Photofriday - 'Unforgettable'

This photo truly is unforgettable to me as it represents time I spent working with kids down in Guatemala. We visited the city dump where so many people make a living by digging through the trash. This tree, like many of the other trees on either side of it were full of vultures. Like a scene right out of Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' the vision of these birds, the dump, the smell and the people will forever be in my mind.
