People in a miserable situation:

The top photo is of the Zaatari refuge camp in Jordan filled by Syrians fleeing their oppressive regime.  The bottom photo is of the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.

From these two pictures, you would never know one group of people is in a horrible place that they can’t get out of (for the time being) and the other group is there for a few days.  One group is experiencing misery and hardship and the other group is having the time of their lives.  One group has no freedom of choice and the other group has all the freedom in the world.  One group is at a sustenance level, the other “roughing it” because the want to.  One group is searching for freedom and the other has found it.

Perspective – it is an interesting concept.
