Phodographer Carolyn Lane in Kuilsrivier, South Africa Feb. 2009
I initially shot and distributed pictures for all the children in the Zevenwacht Winery Preschool. It occurred to me that if the children had never had their pictures taken, it was quite likely neither had their moms. So walking back I stopped along the vineyards and took pictures of every single working mom! When the lorry (truck) picked them up, they all shouted their gratitude and waved goodbye.
Best Foto of the Week!

"Dog Meets World went over fabulously in my village. It is a perfect option for Peace Corps volunteers like myself. I like the Foto dog mascot, kids like it, and it is a representation of the peace and the ideas of the project."
Kristen Woodruff, Phodographer Costa Rica
"The kids are absolutely loving Dog Meets World. For a majority, these were the first images of themselves that they have ever owned."
