The pretty maiden from Yangshou
printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
This delightful image was caught during the Liu San Jie Impression Light Show set on the waters of the Li Jiang near Yangshou, southern China. This sweet young girl, dressed in traditional costume, was a participant in the show and she surely must have spied me raising the camera to take a shot. She turned, looked straight into my face, and gave me the most gorgeous of smiles. I smiled back, the shutter clicked, and that fleeting moment of communication, a simple and sincere connection between two complete strangers, was captured forever. I shall never forget that smile so generously given.
