shoe-horn? maybe, maybe not. My personal feeling is that language is a means to communication and a smile can say so much more than words, an emotion can portrait feelings in a way words can never do, Sometimes A Smile Can Say it All

I quite love shots like this. He looks like someone I'd like to know - very warm, very kind.

I like the way this photo shows some of the personality of the subject, rather than being a stiff photo of a person smiling. I like the lighting and the prtocessing of this as well. Works really well in B&W

Good use of light, and interesting character study. Facial expressions are, indeed, a language recognizable all over the world.
