iPhonography Series: Ordinary People, Epic Cities

BY WENDY HUNG

In this past year, I’ve not only visited a wide variety of countries, but countries that generally aren’t on a traveler’s agenda. It’s been a blessing to see the sites, endure long plane rides and taste local flavors. It’s furthermore touching to meet people who do not speak my languages yet exude infinite kindness and innocent-like generosity. Similar to every traveler, my iPhone captures rare moments on the streets of my journeys across the globe. As I showed my travel photos to my mentor this week, she reminded me the idea we had years ago of putting together a coffee table book. Before I embark on that project, I wanted to give you a taste of a series which stays close to my heart – the greatest ordinary people.
