This really is a lovely picture. I find myself wishing I could talk to her, hear her story, her distant memories... whichever ones she still has. The snow on the ground is substantial, but her expression tells me this is not un-common. Her smile is so lovely and warm. You timed this photo so well. Was it planned or just a spurr-of-the-moment opportunity? What sort of camera did you use? Have you touched-up the picture at all?
Well it's amazing! And charming, and reminiscent, and sad, but joyful too... Aaaah, a cacophony of emotions, this is rare my friend. I say you have very good "spontaneous" insight - I look forward to seeing more. <D
