I Lhasa, Tibet, I was photographing pilgrims circumambulating around Potala Palace, a lifetime and historical quest for Tibetans. I’d been photographing a different scene when I realized I needed to be elsewhere…immediately. With just a couple of minutes to make it to my destination, I was running through the streets, and crowds, in Lhasa. Then I saw her, and my photographer’s radar insisted I needed to photograph her. An older woman with one of the most pleasant and happy faces I’ve seen anywhere, I ran up to her, asking in sign language (I don’t speak much Tibetan!) if I could take her photo.  I ascertained she was from a small mountain village, so who knows how many “enthusiastic” westerners she’s seen.
