I need help finding one of the most powerful photos I've ever seen and can't get out of my mind.

Last night I was looking at my photography feed in Zite. I think it was on the National Geographic site. Anyway it froze Zite and when I reloaded, the photo was no longer listed.

I've searched and browsed on National Geographic and googled but haven't been able to find the photo again.

These are the details as I remember them: There were two children in the left lower third of the frame. Both were looking in the photographer's direction, obviously distraught. The older child was seated with his body facing into the frame, so the camera recorded his side. He was holding the the younger child who was facing him. Both boys IIRC. Both wore dirty clothes. The younger child had no pants and I believe had tears. Behind them was a landfill. I think there were trash bags into infinity. It seems like the caption said something about them being from Nepal and the photograph was captured by a Chinese photographer and won some type of award.

If you know which photograph I'm talking about, please post the link in the comments. Please share this if you would.

I participated in the Nebraska State Fair this year. I entered 10 B&W and 10 colored photographs. This album contains the photos that received an award. This picture of deer bones won best of show. I was pretty much floored. :)

Two more. The first picture may look familiar. I posted a similar picture before, but this time as I walked by, I noticed some new "water art" behind the fire hydrant.
