Daily Foto: Photo Day in Guanacasta, Costa Rica

Phodographer and Peace Corps Volunteer (PCV) Kristen Woodruff writes “Dog Meets World is a perfect option for the Peace Corps. My idea is to keep the DMW printer circulating within Costa Rica to different PCVs to use in collaboration with projects they might already be doing- like my Chicas Poderosas (Strong Girls) group. And I like the Foto dog mascot. Kids like the dog, and Foto is a representation of the peace and the ideas of the project.

These are scenes from the kids photo day in my village. Only 156 people live in my village so I know them all. I got kids ranging from a few months to 11 years. The mom of the little baby was so happy to have a baby picture! It reminds me how in the States we take a millions of baby pics and have gigantic albums and everything and some of the families here don’t even have one photo of their kids when they´re infants.”
