I have always had a soft spot for smiling faces and this photograph stands out to me simply because of the beautiful smile surrounded by expressionless faces. While everyone else was focused on a dance performance, something caused this woman to burst into such an amazing expression of which I am grateful to have captured.

It never ceases to amaze what a smile can do and express. A smile, more often than not, can diffuse tense situations; bring happiness and joy; and create an atmosphere of peace. One of the biggest privileges I have is to capture moments such as this and hopefully share the joy that I received from it.
