The Old Lady of Madrid

    Newer Older

    Way back in 2003 I visited my friend Cachu and her family in Madrid.
    I had a great time there and took a load of photos but it was months later before I posted any photos.
    This is a shot of an old woman sitting in a park enjoying the autumn sunshine somewhere in Madrid. Unfortunately I was quite far away from her and had to use the "digital zoom" of my Sony 717 to get this close so the quality isn't the best but I really liked this image.

      This is a beautiful capture - the black and white brings out the melancholy of her face - or is it disapproval of being photographed?

      I wonder what those old eyes have seen, what story lies behind that face?
