I LOVE this photo of jazz percussionist, Red Norvo. Like, so much. It looks like he just got surprised by the cutest puppy attached to 100 balloons. Or just discovered a 10 foot tall hot fudge sundae. (Yeah, so maybe I miss my dog and haven’t eaten sugar in far too long)Even though Norvo passed away in 1999, this photo still makes me happy for his happiness because its timeless and contagious.
Open mouthed smiles generally make me pretty happy. Even if they’re contrived and uncomfortable. Heres some that I took of my friends (and myself) that still make me giggle.
