A passing smile - Photographer: Garret Clarke

After weeks of traveling alone through Sri Lanka, I found myself on an old train high up in the Ceylon Mountains. This passing smile from a woman on another train encapsulated the unmistakable feeling of joy I had experienced during the previous weeks.

Pictorymag.com is a showcase for people around the world to document their lives and cultures. Anyone can submit one large, captioned image to each of Pictory’s editorial themes.

The current accidentally published theme ‘Just like heaven‘ looks into our happiest places, through the camera’s lens and mind’s eye.
