Phodographer Itza Carbajal in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Aug. 2010
Itza, a student at the University of Texas in San Antonio volunteered at an orphanage in Honduras. She said what was special about doing Dog Meets World was the thrill of the children when they learned they could actually keep their pictures. Surprising, how children who has gone through so much pain can still shine with happiness.
LOVE, PEACE AND HAPPINESS…..spread through the power of photography and a little Foto pup, with a heart and a peace sign on it’s paws! Happy Valentine’s Day World!
Best Foto of the Week!
