Artist's Description

Rowing Tour this year took me to Lisbon, Portugal. I was walking through the streets when I passed this little girl in the window. She seemed so happy just being there, no worries in life (at least that’s the feel she gave me). Yet all around was poverty…the houses were falling down, homeless people everywhere…

I haven’t done much editing at all with this image…it was a quick snap as i passed her by. It’s raw and true to the moment, the way i want to keep it.

I saw another perfect shot just after this image was taken. A very old lady was peeping over her front door (the top half was open). Her fingers were clutched to the wood, and her old wrinkled eyes peered over the top at us. Above her head hung a small washing line with 2 socks hung upon it. It was a beautiful description of my experience in Lisbon. But for some reason, I just didn’t have the heart to capture her life as it was, purely for my art. I guess it’ll just have to stay imprinted in my memory.
