Phodographer John Rader, educator in Cusco, Peru, March 2010
This is the perfect picture (okay it’s today’s perfect picture because at Dog Meets World all the pictures capture perfect images to share). This child raises money on the streets of the old Incan capital by offering to pose for tourists. Educator John Rader on a spring break trip was the first to offer her a copy for herself. The baby goat and little Foto have identical coloring and they look like they’re happily interacting, actually I think they’re “kissing”. Sharing a photo on-the-spot leaves an indelible affirmation and a tiny seed of peace. Teachers make perfect phodograpahers!
Best Foto of the Week!
