Flowers for the People of Burma

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Jo Ann Simmons

When I saw this man turning with the flowers I knew I only had a split second before the opportunity was over. Life went onto slow motion which often happens when I feel completely satisfied, just before I snap the shutter. The feeling of stillness out on that noisy street, I knew I had been given a gift.

Location: Union of Burma
