Smiling Assasin

Posted by Nitin (Shanghai, China) on 3 March 2015 in People & Portrait.

“There are many kinds of smiles, each having a distinct character. Some announce goodness and sweetness, others betray sarcasm, bitterness and pride some soften the countenance by their languishing tenderness, others brighten by their spiritual vivacity.”

Johann Kaspar Lavater

Another lovely old lady spending her time with just dreams of yester years and hopes of a better tomorrow.

Picture was taken in Yangdi in Yangshuo in Guilin, a little village of several hundred people by the river. It is very close to the picture on the 20RMB currency note, and I was lucky to have the chance to visit my friends Eric and Maarten living in this village, running their beautiful old house restored into a village retreat.
