Not a Painting

I found this photograph in the local paper a few weeks ago.  It is a sad tale, with a terrible beauty.  I thought it was a painting, a collage, an installation.  I was shocked to find it was 'real':

A beautiful, almost surreal illustration of the impact of natural disasters on the lives of those caught up within it.

It has a certain tranquility about it and the face of acceptance.

It really does look like a painting. Sobering to think, only a fine line separates us from tragedy or disaster. All the more reason to appreciate the 'good times'.

It could have been any of those things. Reality is often shocking and beautiful at the same time.
