13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This is a photograph of a man who finds happiness in contentment, yes he does not have a lot of assets in life to boast about ,but his expression portrays how that fact does not bother his spirit of happiness and optimism.
Every day he comes down to the market at 6am with his cart full of fresh peanuts, and he joins his friends who has been doing the same alongside him for a decade.
In his words "I wake up in the morning to be here in this market where I spend the day earning my bread and spending everyday with friends that I have made over the past 15 years, I have everything that a man needs to be happy"
