I absolutely loved this woman’s smile. We were out in one of the rural villages of Haiti one afternoon helping with a food distribution and while I was wandering and taking pictures of the beautiful scenery, this woman was interested in what I taking pictures of. I showed her a few of the pictures and her face lit up with this same smile and I asked if I could take a picture of her; she smiled and nodded her head. When I showed her the picture of herself, she lit up once again.
I remember that most Haitians don’t have their picture taken often and less often get to see the pictures that are taken of them. It was a gift for me to see this woman’s face light up in seeing her smile on my camera. I love taking pictures but I love sharing them even more for this very reason.

“I stand on the edge of these wetlands, a place of renewal, an oasis in the desert, as an act of faith, believing the sun has completed the southern end of its journey and is now contemplating its return toward light.” –Terry Tempest Williams
(note: this is one of my favorite spots on bainbridge island, thought i would add in a little glimpse of home)
