NEW Phodographer Annabelle Gallois in Bercy, Haiti, July 2009
Dr Annabelle Gallois a staff scientist for Vistakon writes of her first Dog Meets World experience: What a joy it was to see these beautiful Haitian eyes light up when receiving a picture of them and their family. It was the most precious moment to share. It allowed the children from the orphanage (with whom we were traveling into the neighborhood village) to help out and participate in this photo sharing endeavor. All minds and hearts were wide opened for us to create community together. It brought tears to my eyes.
Best Foto of the Week!
