Tanzania is littered with these small "home made" mine shafts where the locals dig for gold. Very dangerous and zero standards in place.

It certainly looks dangerous. He is unsecured over that gaping hole! Very good image to show the depth of the hole but a part of me wishes I didn't know about it.

A great shot! What a way to make a living! Your processing is wonderful and I am surprised that you were able to get such good detail far down into the hole.

Life is very hard for many in Tanzania. People are pushed to make a living. Unfortunately, many die trying to scrape together a life.

A brilliant photo. The pose is the same as in a pillory, a old form of torture or punishment, which adds an extra degree of drama. Perfect tones as well as composition. Bravo!

Yes, many have a very hard life there. Definitely makes one appreciate what they have after visiting places that have so little.

I have been down many such holes. Some many hundreds of feet deep.

Thanks for posting.
