Small Kindness

I will never forget the small kindness that a stranger from Macau has done for me.

My family and I were on vacation and we visited the Museum of Macau. After that we were at a garden and Mom told me to take a photo of the Grand Lisboa at the other side.

Whilst there I saw a man also taking pictures of the beautiful landmark. I captured mine in a very simple shot.

Then I proceeded to take photos around me. Suddenly the man appeared. He must have noticed that I was taking a picture of Grand Lisboa. He started talking to me in Cantonese while showing me a place where I can see a better view of that building and take a better photo of it.

I don’t understand Cantonese but I listen to his body language. Apparently there is a big hole in a wall where you can see through outside. He said I can photograph a better view of the building by taking advantage of  the hole. He showed me his photos in his DSLR. They were awesome!

So I took three shots and I chose the “best” one here. Can you see the difference? Better view no?

I smiled and thanked him a lot. He continued to talk and I just nodded at him all the time. Lol!
I can never forget this man who have shown his creativity and kindness by sharing it to me. Who would have thought that a stranger wants you to take awesome photos too?

Ahh.. thank you Lord for him. Thank you for kindness. It certainly makes the world go round.
