I have always been amazed while looking at all of the photos of people captured by camera on Flickr and how awesome the photos were. I believe that these photos speak so powerfully. I thought I would give it a try.

On a recent visit to Nuevo Progreso, Mexico my wife and I would walk the streets and shop with all of the local vendors. I noticed there was many elderly people who would just sit on the dirty walkways and simply hold a cup in the air hoping to receive a handout from people.

I told my wife I was going to ask this lady if I could take her picture. The lady agreed and the first thing she started to do was straighten here hair. My wife and I simply told her she was already beautiful. We made a small donation to her for here time and moved on, but the thought of this lady has not left me.

Although she appears older her in this photo I have to believe as a young woman she was so beautiful, but the more I looked at this photo I realized she is even more beautiful today.

Always see the beauty in everyone.

Enjoy - Happy Shooting
