“Be universal in your love. You will see the universe to be the picture of your own being.” -Sri Chinmoy
Something I truly enjoy capturing during my travels are shots of families and love around the world. It reminds us that people are all the same and the basic need and yearning to love and be loved is universal. No matter what religion, race, sex or socioeconomic status we live in, we are all human beings who share our love for one another and those near and dear to our hearts.
Here are some of my favorite captures of love around the world.
