A Photo from UNHCR: Refugee Girl

From Carly, a refugee's story , originally uploaded by  UNHCR . This picture was one that I found when looking at the UN's Flickr stream, the main focus of which is refugees. I found that there was something very moving about the distant look in her eyes. Unfortunately, there is little text on the UN site to explain who she is or what the exact nature of her situation is, but perhaps this makes it all the more upsetting.  On the same Flickr photostream page there is a link to a cartoon about a Refugee called Carly - perhaps this is meant to reflect the girl's situation in life. The video can be found on YouTube .

Hammersmith Sunset

Sunset in Hammersmith can be a thing of beauty. The above picture was taken on my iPhone from the roof of my workplace last week. Most of the day there had been a thick blanket of fog, but around 3pm it suddenly lifted to reveal the sun. This is the view from my workplace, looking towards the River Thames and Hammersmith Bridge.
