    simply smashing, I love it because it shows the everyday life in a country that all the media shows about is WAR and destruction…

    Good use of light, shadow and contrast. Well-filled tight framing and good composition.

  5. This photograph depicts the need still cook to survive even in a war zone, we all need to eat bread in the most difficult of times.

    (Very intrigued as to why there is a pattern on each loaf? An art form……)
