When I posted this photo on Twitter, one of the first comments was: "this photo gives me hope for better times." A young woman smiling and walking down the street without a mask. A person who shows that a smile is possible even in these difficult times. A smile costs so little and can give so much. A smile can make so many people happy, a smile can give hope. And there is hope, hope for a better tomorrow.
Every where we go we’ll find them in the streets walking, sitting on the sidewalks, and even laying down sleeping, specially in New York City and other parts in the USA. Walking through the streets of Times Square there was a man sitting on the sidewalk gently counting his money that people been giving while passing by him. Some people helped out, others will ignore, but is real life. I took this photo on his level; maybe it would’ve been better if I took the picture from the side for the background to be blur. However, I’m sure there are going to be better shots.
While walking through the streets of China Town in Manhattan, N.Y., this beautiful lady grabbed my attention with all her merchandise ready to start the day, a new day, another day of hope, hoping for a better day. I liked the buildings in the back, so I bend my knees a little and "click", froze that beautiful moment forever.
