homELearning Activity 2 (S1-04: 20 Matthew Wong)

Picture 2(a)
I think the main focus of this picture is the man who is ferrying two passengers on the trishaw. He has to ferry people on a busy road full of cars for a living. He is having a very tough time as he is heading in the opposite direction of the main traffic and has to dodge vehicles heading towards him while concentrating on pulling his passengers to their destination.
The message of the picture is that there is a growing poverty gap causing the rich to be very rich and the poor to be very poor. This picture clearly shows that. The man pulling the trishaw has to do backbreaking work to bring home the bread and cannot afford even shoes while others, like the person on the motorcycle, are rich enough to afford their own vehicles.
I feel that the photograph is very clear, the message is clear too. I do not think it needs any adjustments.
