Very nice photo and an attractive woman. I bet her freckles are natural too.

Women are getting freckles tattooed on their faces

Lovely shots here, especially the one of the freckled lady. These girls were hanging out of a bus that was in a parade. When they saw my camera they shouted, "Saca mi foto, saca mi foto!" It wasn't until later that I realized one of them was cross eyed for the shot. :D

This is kind of "environmental" portrait, if you indulge me. This was in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The kid was selling pineapple slices and the hopefull/anxious(?) look on his face to make a sale as he made eye contact with me was haunting (me). Since I am cautious about eating raw vegetables when travelling, I just gave him the price of purchase (US$1) without taking any fruit.

He indeed is a self-proclaimed 'natural king' with a huge respect for flowers, going by what he wears on his head. :)

The bouncing light on his face is very good and he has a lovely warm face altough a little bewildered by a good stranger. :)

Thanks for sharing, Sury.

Very impressive photos of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, ValeryD. :D

Neatly taken to deliver good details in high-resolution.

Canada has a gentle soul for a leader and I hope politics don't change him and his approach to humanity.

Thanks for sharing,
