Someone Special by Kasia-D

Currently unavailable for purchase

Uploaded on March 8th 2011, International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate women and their achievements!

From the instant I saw his woman I knew that she was special. I don’t know her name or her story, but I am sure she has one.

This beautiful lady, who is a stallholder at the market in Hoi An, Vietnam, radiated such elegance, friendliness, warmth and hope that she has to be my representative for International Women’s Day 2011. If anyone knows her personally please let me know.

Location: Daily Market, Hoi An, Vietnam

    excellent portrait…she is the kind of woman you would want to spend time with….she must have seen so much in her lifetime, yet she smiles.

  • Emanon, thank you so much for your kind words! I felt the same thing when I saw her. Also she was extremely patient with the tourist photographers all around trying to capture her smile:-) Kasia
