I have mentioned before Chris Orwig's book on People Photography. I was recently reading an assignment in it about capturing emotion other than canned smiles or stern glares into the lens. It reminded me of the shot above, which I took at a Japanese Obon festival. I love the look on the little girl's face.
 
I also enjoyed a single image post on mu-43.com by user LC55.

I need to complete the assignment in Chris' book, and see if I can come up with some more shots of emotion.
