The Small Things....

Mother Teresa once said....
"Be faithful in small things, 
because it is in them that your strength lies"

The small things for me are the 
moments captured thru photography.
Trying to make it my own and make it personal.

Small things on my recent trip to India...
and the images below... observing men, brothers, 
fathers and sons in the heat of the day...
followed by a little boy who made me smile.

Each photo happened quickly and without hesitation...
I just hoped for the best. :)

When and how do you connect with that special moment?

Lastly....this young boy came up to me on my last night in Jaipur. 
He was positively beaming as he asked if he could take my photo.
It still makes me smile to think that he wanted a picture of me. I said yes, 
but only if I could take a picture of him as well. We had a deal. 

Here he stands, with his little camera bag strapped to his waist, 
 his little striped shirt neatly tucked in as he gave me his full attention 
with his beautiful brown eyes.

Mother Teresa was's the small things. :)
