A few weeks ago, I volunteered to take some pictures for Illumination Foundation, a non-profit organization that has a number of programs to help the homeless or disenfranchised find housing, work or medical care. I had a chance to take some portrait pictures of the residents. It was one of the most humbling experiences.

She was incredibly shy at first, telling me that she does not know how to pose for a photo. In fact, she did not have to strike a pose at all. Her facial expression easily invokes a constellation of emotions within myself.
She was making her afternoon coffee, when I approached her for a photo. I was just impressed by her sense of fashion, and how she can naturally pull off those vibrant colors.
Frankly, I have never ever finished a sudoku before. I just had to marvel at this gentleman’s ability to devour one sudoku after another. He knew I was taking his picture, but he gave zero crap. I love that.
