Smiling Faces of Shanghai

Faces of Shanghai

My favourite photos are the ones where you got to make a connection with the place or person. While walking through a park here in Shanghai I was surprised at how many people were willing to let me take their photo once I asked. My favourite group of photos is from a cloudy day in the park, of the park gardner. Eventhough we could not understand each other he smiled and allowed me to take his photo. After taking his photo he came and asked me to please take a photo of him with his friend.

Peace begins with a smile. Smile is a simple act, but sometimes takes a lot of effort. A smile can cause boundaries to melt, hearts to warm up, and distances to reduce. (Mother Teresa)

A couple of days later I tracked him down again in the same park to give him the photos that I had taken. It made him smile and he imediately went to track down his friend to give him his copy of their photo together.
