I was in Tijuana for a week, visiting friends and family there to celebrate my partner’s birthday and the birthday of a friend’s four year old son. It seemed there were at least a dozen parties although I know there were only a couple … πŸ™‚ 

I was in a most un-photographically oriented mood, needed a rest, and ended up taking only a few photographs. But I still carried a camera with me almost all the time … habit dies hard. At one of the evening parties this lovely woman gave me the gift of a great smile when she saw me pull out the camera. It was very dim, I didn’t really have much hope that I’d get anything decent: I had just enough time to focus and squeeze the shutter release to capture her look. 


A good reason to always have a camera with me! πŸ™‚
