I was struck by her energy and joy for life. I asked her if I could take a photo as I just loved her face and the energy she exuded and she said "YES".
I had just started my passion for photography and was wondering what would be my subject matter? Buildings, Nature, Ladnscape? All interesting subjects to capture, however, nothing moves me more than those magical moments involving people and capturing people in those moments. What I get from this image is a present moment of joy and celebration of life itself. What do you get for yourself?
Thank you, to the lady in the park.

87 years old and this image illustrates to me a youthful spirit inside an aging body. Behind the eyes, "the wisdom" of age. The intensity of the gaze, communicates, "I am still here, my story ain't over...yet".
I had to include this one of myself because I am two weeks away from my 50th birthdayand I am in a very introspective space, not because I find 50 daunting, no. I am inquiring into the next phase of my evolution.
It is an awesome thought to consider that I have been on this planet for 50 years, and reflecting on my hopes, dreams, aspirations, triumphs, failures, disappointments, my loves lost, the love I cherish now and yet still my greatest story is waiting to be written.
Watch this space.

I am moved by this photo - I feelstillness, intention and pensiveness and yet, the eyes communicate to me drive and desire to live and express.
Power mixed with vulnerability comes through with a steely determination. A strong face projectingpassion with humanity and compassion.
One word, vulnerability. She is a friend of mine so I will add, someone who possess's a wonderful openness and spirit for life.
Joy, happiness, full blown expression. I really believe our face communicates so much emotion, no matter how much we try to cover up our true feelings. Joy and happiness is our natural state, anything else robs us of our bliss.
