I ♥ Faces: Smirk

Who better to give me a great smirk photo than my 14 year old sister. This summer I had her do a mock shoot with me both for practice and because my mom really wanted pictures of her :)  This one may be my true favorite shot though, because it's SO Amanda. I said something along the lines of hey! I'm over here and this is what I got. :) I love her to death, she's such a joker but definitely has an attitude all her own sometimes!

Once again, a photo from Haiti. Please excuse the focus... this was taken from the back of a truck also driving down this road (if you can call it that) This is one of the most common forms of transportation in Pignon. The most I've seen is 6 people on one bike at a time- 3 adults, 2 toddlers and an infant. Can you say carpooling?
