Ly Thi Mui, 42, a homeless woman with HIV, and her five-year-old son bathe in the Red River in Hanoi, Vietnam.

"Even though they face many daily challenges, like the threat of being arrested by the police, and have very little means of survival, they have an overwhelming sense of hope because they find happiness in their simple affection for each other," Justin Maxon, who took the picture, wrote on a SportsShooter.com Web page.
