NEW Phodographer Amy Wiza in Managua and Tipitapa Nicaragua, 2012
Amy writes “While traveling throughout Nicaragua, and making stops at Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners of the Americas projects, it was great fun to spend time with the children and leave them with a photo of themselves. All the participants loved practicing photo diplomacy through Dog Meets World! Perhaps the most fun was watching the kids, their expressions, excitement and anticipation as the photo was printed right before their eyes. I’m fairly certain they had never seen anything like it, and were thrilled to walk away with a photo in hand. Also, we stopped at a center for individual special needs and made photos which they placed on their desks. We took and printed over 100 photos during our short time there.”
Best Foto of the Week!
