I am always intrigued by the expressions on people’s faces. What are they thinking? What is their life about? Are they happy? Most importantly what is their life story?

This woman sat at my regular coffee shop, on a Sunday morning, staring at the menu.

After all that she just drank a coffee, no breakfast :-)

    I think she’s aghast at the prices.
    Nice work Andrew.

  • Hi Maree :-) Yeah your right about the prices, I love this cafe they do the best coffees but their brekkie is expensive….

    Looking at the menu but reading the memories in her mind perhaps. Perhaps I am wrong but, in your most striking portrait, I think I see great loneliness. Great image. Cheers.P.

  • Thank you…yeah I have seen her around where I live…I think life has worn her down but I have seen her with friends :-)
