Sad photo hunt

While on our trip a week ago we traveled through the uniquely beautiful New Mexico Desert



We encountered these and other glitzy Casinos in the middle of no where along the Hwy and



then we saw how the people living and probably working there lived and were so saddened at the disparity

and the heat of the desert was very hot in the day and cold at night

and I thought these people have to be suffering and it is just sad and seems so.... unjust.

That is sad indeed. Money all around, but people living in poverty.

Your photojournalism for this week's theme is right on the mark. Unfortunately.
