The Smiling Sage by lorrainemd The Smiling Sage by lorrainemd
While visiting a temple in Vietnam, I caught a glance of this man, teaching, praying and smiling all the while, despite goofy tourists everywhere. The power of a smile is almost unparalled.

I know that most people do not really appreciate this type work on DA (i hope more people subit photojournalism), but i would like people to get a chance to see some of my street portraiture...i think it is the most profound type of photography...it opens the mind to the similarities in people.

Thank you.

Wow the moment you capture in your photography is simply breathtaking. I've just finished going through your gallery and I think your photos are simply amazing. My personally favorites are the pictures you took when you where in Vietnam. I'm pretty much drawn speechless when I look at them. You have a wonderful eye, and I just like to say thanks for sharing your photos on here. They are truly wonderful.

I must confess.
Photojournalism doesn't really appeal to me
But this one sure caught my eye.
