I saw this woman as I parked my car in the city.

It was mid morning on a summers day.

I grabbed my camera and walked over to her as she drank coffee in a sidewalk cafe.

“May I take your photograph”

“Yes” she replied.

I asked her her name she replied

    I cant see that she is happy, ion the contrary i feel some sadness & wisdom …
    Excellent moment of shooting.

  • You may just be right kastana, on the other hand when speaking to her she was very bubbly, I was pleased to see her in that position when I took the shot, have you seen the twin to this image, a much happier shot
    Thanks for coming by
