My friend, Carmi has been posting some face pictures on his site from his recent trip to ShangHai. I understand your policy in the western world on face pictures, but really, these faces have so much character it's hard not to take pictures!

So I'm posting two of my favorite face pictures. I have more, just not on this computer. I have some great face pictures of older people. The lines on their faces add so much character. I love it. Here are some kids, though. The little boy with the red cap is a friend. His name is Asi. My husband took the picture of the girls.

Absolutely Wonderful! These are beautiful pictures.

I am getting more and more used to taking people shots. I still don't like to take shots of people I don't know but getting a little better at it.

Precious! I especially like the picture below. The photo really pops out at you. I'm not sure I get the part about policy on face pictures, though.

I never get tired of looking at pictures like these!

Carmi is a journalist, and usually walks around with releases so he can take pictures to be published. So he feels a bit uncomfortable taking them. But after being here and seeing that they are just as quick to take our picture, I don't think it's as offensive here. :)

Their spirit practically leaps off the screen. I feel warmer and happier for having seen them.

Thank you for mentioning me in relation to this magical entry. What a cool global community we seem to be building.

Thanks for sharing these pictures with us - what amazing photographers you are! And I just feel my heart swelling with love at the diversity of these beautiful souls.

Great pictures - cute kids! One thing that really stands out at me is the dirty, worn hands of the smiling girl in the red bandana. It reminds me that most kids in the western world have such soft lives nowadays, while 2nd and 3rd world children are not so lucky - they're forced to grow up so fast. The picture tells me that these little girls are strong and industrious labourers, yet still fun-loving kids afterall, but without the luxury of being able to just "play" most of the time. She's got the hands of a veteran working adult, but the face of a playful child. Then again, that's an assumption - they could just be mucking about in a sandbox in a park :) Thanks for posting!
