    Calcutta is comprised of winding side streets and mazes of bustling markets. Wandering around this eclectic city one morning, I ventured under an overpass to do some more exploring. I soon encountered this lovely woman with a terrific grin. We shared a great moment and this has since become one of my favorite memories in India. As a photographer, this moment taught me the importance of exploration and risk-taking. I never would have crossed paths with her had I not wandered off the beaten path.

    This is such a sweet photograph, Christina. This interaction was spontaneous but memorable for you, and the genuine smile she wears shows she enjoyed your company as well. I love all the details in this image, the deep earth tones, and that you framed her a bit off center. Beautiful work!
