Beaming on the Beach

Venice Beach -- "What kind of smile can you give me today," I asked with my camera in hand. To my surprise, the gregarious beach comber threw his head back and gave me an impressive, toothless smile.

"So, how was that?" he asked with vigor.

I grinned and while extending my right hand in a shake, I told him, "You just made my day!"

Great picture, great guy.
I like the way you show the special things in everyday life. It's kinda different from the image of LA that's usually projected this side of the lake, you know the glamour and that kinda thing. By the way I just joined CDP with amsterdamdailyphoto.com. You're welcome to visit and comment.

Photos of people smiling help balance all the negatives surrounding us everyday. Thanks for all your comments. I'll try to post more "happy" shots.
