Zunil is a picturesque little town on the shores of the, very polluted, Salamá River in Guatemala. Verdant agricultural fields and hot springs surround it, and on market day a vibrant and colorful crowd in their traditional outfits invade the market area. I was wandering through the crowd of people when I saw this little girl. When I took her photo, instead of ignoring me and turning her face away, she looked at me with this sweet but nostalgic face. I really like her expression.
