Alex was raised on Japanese food. He loves it. In Japan, there was a lot more variety of tastes. He especially loved the fruit drinks with fruit in it.
This is him at the Airport...ready for departure...back to the U.S.A. As you can tell, his smile is forced. He still has a difficult time forming a smile when it isn't sincere....then again...perhaps too many people find it too easy to do so. It simply isn't natural to smile when it doesn't come from within. He only did so because his Mother told him to smile for the camera. He will sometimes argue that it is phony. He is right. I think it is the photographer's job to capture the real you and the right moment. It is the person's job to be genuine and true to one's self.
