If you think you’ve got it bad, why not check out some of the situations pictured in our selection for week 22. Remember, you could be living in the killing fields that is Syria (Hello, Western politicians, what’s the difference between Libya and Syria? Oil?), you could be without work in Spain, you could be living in the civil war torn African continent or you could be the Amazon rainforest currently under siege from people burning up the trees to make charcoal. All in all, if you are able to view these images on your home PC you haven’t got it that bad. Have a good weekend all and don’t forget about our TotallyCoolPix contest.
