#FriFotos: Similar Smiles

Posted July 12, 2013 by Elica Sue in Blog

#FriFotosfollow is a weekly Twitter chat where travelers can share their favorite photos based on a certain theme. To see this week’s theme and photos, search #FriFotos on Twitter. Tweet one of your own and join in the fun!  

If you haven’t been following the Twitter hashtag #FriFotos, this week’s theme is SMILES! In a seemingly large world where we are separated by culture, vast distances, and languages, smiles are one of the most unifying and heartwarming symbols we have that tell others that we are one. The color of our skin, hair, and eyes vary from person to person, the sound of our accents and languages change depending on where you are in the world, the way we dress and how we live, all places us in our own piece of the world. We are familiar with certain people, and new to others, but to those new acquaintances, a smile is all it takes, because it is so similar. We are so different, yet so similar. Check out some of the photos we’ve gathered for this week’s topic…
