A hearty smile from a vendor on the Klongs (canals) of the old part of Bangkok, where life continues remarkably at a traditional pace.
I bought a beer form her and gave it to our long boat driver to drink later.
They call Thailand The Land of Smiles for good reason..

Great, happy shot, Justin. She seems thrilled to be on film, and you've captured her and her surroundings quite well, with sharp clarity and great context. Very well composed.

a charming portrait of this smiling women, it made my day become brighter straight away. Thai people are so frindly and smily, so their reputation is no myth. Great capture and a good idea to bring it on in black and white.
happy new year

Hi Justin ,
firstly save your money for a nice trip to South America you will love it.
Now this is a very good portrait of the extremely happy lady - I think if it was me I would keep my lips together ha! ha!
The choice of black & white is very good - I really like this photo showing an image of what daily life is like on the river.
