Exposures: The Gift

I ran across this photograph while sifting through images from my trip to Thailand.  My friends and I had gone to a slum in Pattaya, where we were giving out food.  This woman was so grateful that she wanted to give us something in return.  While my friend Tammy and I wanted more than anything to take the plant with us, we had to explain that they wouldn’t let us take it on the plane.  She understood and cut off a few small flowers for us instead.
