“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”
― Mother Teresa

As I have written, I participate in an ongoing photography scavenger hunt.  Participating photographers are given a list of words and work to create an image for each word.  In a recent hunt, one of the words was smile.

When I saw the word smile, it got me to thinking about how fortunate I am to get to see so many beautiful smiles each day while at work.  The smiles that I see are forever changing throughout the school year.  I teach six and seven-year-old children.  Six and seven-year-olds are losing their teeth on a regular basis.  One of our instructional activities each day is to update a calendar book.  We have a half page in our books specifically for celebrating those who have lost a tooth on a day in that month.

I decided to make a composite to celebrate these beautiful smiles so that I could remember how important these smiles and milestones were on a daily basis throughout my career.

Using my macro lens, I took one picture of each of my students.  I combined these images to make my composite titled Smile.

Smile

I hope you will share your smile today.

Spread the love

I am a travel and fine art photographer living and working in the Carolinas. My camera has taken me to places I never would have experienced and to people I never would have met. Photography has truly changed my life! Using my blog, I hope to share the joys of both travel and photography.
