work hard much?

saw him sleeping in a construction area on that joali when i peeped out of the window this afternoon. either he really likes that joali or was so exhausted that he collapsed there.
stupid maldivians >.< why cant we do our own work by ourselves?

apart from that i love this. this has to be my first black and white in which the tones are exactly as i want it to be. the areas i want to be light are light vice versa. now i just need to be better at focusing. auto focus is annoying. i had to take this half a dozen times to get it like that. the camera kept focusing on the wooden thingy.

tips are welcome.

    why doesnt maldivians do their own work? well, if u can make a bangaalhee work for you over 12hrs a day for a pay of Rf1500 per month, why pay Rf4500 per month to a maldivian to do exactly the same work? plus the maldivian will have to go here and there during work and to his island every now and then whereas the bangaalhee will be ABLE to go for a month after a YEAR. its slavery i tell you but still its understandable why bangaalhees are hired. and construction companies have over 150workers. imagine all the money that they are gonna save if they hire bangaalhees. over Rf450,000 per month on just the salary.so its understandable.

    i agree with the above person. proud maldivians... >.<

    nice pic. everything looks more awesome in B&W, i believe. ^^

    so WAS this guy a lazy bum or a hard worker making use of some time he earned to rest? :P

    If all Maldivians expect to work for higher salaries some of them are never going to find any employment and that accounts for the number of unemployed youth who break in houses and attack people on the roads...


    btw nice pic~! :)

    Do you realize we've got enough Bangladeshis to form their own political party, vote AND elect one of them for presidency?

    Seems most people don't regard the informal sector as proper jobs of their "standards" and what is that standard? Sitting around on your ass after dropping out of school at 14 and smoking some shit? No qualifications, no responsibility and expectations high as the sky.

    Geez.
