It is perfectly normal to get a pitcher of hot water, walk a few blocks with it and spoons and a table and a tray and a baby carriage and glasses, and enjoy some tea while feeding the baby in the most photogenic rubble in Lebanon.Sidiqin, LEBANON: Displaced Lebanese women drink tea 26 August 2006 amid the rubble of their homes destroyed by Israeli strikes in the southern Lebanese town of Sidiqin.

Doesn't seem contrived at all!
But then again, this photographer seems to have a knack at finding people at just the most poignant time. It's clearly a talent:

Now, exactly why a woman would be hanging around the site of a prison remains a mystery.
But I'm sure Patrick Baz knows the answer.
Maybe this will turn into a series!
