Wading through

Wading through

Shu Yeung, April 2013

Two boys stand in a waste-water drain dug from nearby households to the beach, in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea. The water was stagnant but the boys looked at it intently as they waded through. They were watching for ripples that would betray the small fish that created them. It's a popular activity among children. The drain is a makeshift solution to the severe lack of proper civil infrastructure on this side of town, which is removed from the current business centre.
