I Heart Faces - Flower Power! ▌Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona

In 2004 I traveled to China for the first time. Our companions were another married couple and a Chinese tour guide. This remains one of my most favorite images from that trip; we were driving through a checkpoint of some sort, guarded by the Chinese military. I barely had time to turn on the camera and certainly didn't dare roll the window down, but what a capture! A soldier with a flower, I can think of a couple other iconic images of our lifetime that have the same theme...

For more great flower images, with faces of course, check out this week's contest at I Heart Faces:
