Emerging from shadows

I like to talk. (Call it an occupational hazard.) Traveling as I do allows me to meet all sorts of people. I've made it a rule to speak to every single one of them before taking a photo. It feels like the respectful thing to do. And I end up having some of the most fascinating, thought-provoking, perspective inducing conversations. And then as I'm taking pictures (which has become my daily mental/visual exercise regimen) I can see the stories I just heard play out on their faces. These are incredibly powerful moments for me. I am lucky. So very lucky.
