Virginia is for smilers

by Happydude84

Right after I took this picture a girl came to me and told me that I have the most beautiful smile and then she disappeared right away.


I stood there for a second, quite shocked and of course quite touched by her words. This happened to me at a Highschool in Virginia when I was an exchange student there. Problem was that when the girl came to me, I only had a week left before I had to go back to my home country.

During the remaining week I kept looking for her, but I never saw her again. Nevertheless, the power and confidence that her words brought to me had and still have a very crucial impact on my life. And that is why this picture is just so important to me. It is a reminder that life is simple and that I should take my life easy and enjoy each moment.
