Gratitude and Faith by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

I really enjoyed taking this kind of photographs. I love peoples faces, but now-a-days you can only see their eyes. It was very emotional to shoot this photo because I could see beautiful eyes of gratitude and faith, faith that comes from the higher power, that we can’t see but believe in and feel it. This young lady has the eyes of someone that believes in something that she can’t see, but she knows is there. I have faith that some day we all live in a better world.
