Photo of the Week 2

IMG_4235

One day I was wandering around the streets of Bangkok, Thailand when this man and his daughter caught my attention.

While visiting local markets I often purchase small trinkets to give to the children I meet from day-to-day. This little girl happily accepted my token of friendship with a look of both surprise and gratitude. The tender affection her father displayed towards her was so touching I asked to photograph them together. Here the girl is shown holding her toy as he gently cradles her little arms.

Our interaction was brief, but witnessing their bond was deeply felt. This will forever remain one of my favorite photographs I’ve taken.
