Photographer's Note

Smiling is contagious and no proof needed.....

I was on the prowl for photo opportunities on a cool morning in Yarkand Uyghur old quarter, an amazing place to wander and watch people getting about their life. It's dusty oasis on the edge of Taklamakan desert with lively narrow streets, old mud brick houses, lots of donkey carts and bazaars.

I was lucky enough to have captured this image; the woman's surprised friendly smile - a smile to melt your heart which she seemed pleased and beamed at me.
I think little bits of interaction like that - especially being a loner in a strange land, make my photo adventure very special, meaningful and so spirit uplifting.

May your day be as radiant as her smile...
