smile in the shadows

I don’t remember her name. In fact I don’t recall even asking and she never bothered telling me. But I won’t forget that late afternoon by the beach. She was moving around painting people's hands with henna. I’ll always remember her smile and how she, like the rest of us there, seemed oblivious to what was happening beyond the wonderful confines of the beach at sunset.
Thanks to a borrowed Leica, i was able to capture her smile in the shadows.
