30 Faces from 2013

I really had a beautiful year. From my street in hometown Brooklyn to a sidestreet in Hoi An, Vietnam, I made friends and made pictures all over the earth. 

Yesterday I put 100 names in a fedora (not just any old hat!) and chose 30 names at random for this post, a post of 30 Faces From 2013, a snapshot of 30 of my adventures from this year. All of which brought a smile to my face and an appreciative warmth to my day. 

Thank you to ALL the faces that have crossed my path this year!

With gratitude,
