    .. beyond first appearances .. yes she *must* have been a stunningly beautiful woman in her prime. How do I know .. well as if confirmation were needed, I have met the daughter and grand daughters ;-)

    Testing the fab Canon 85mm 1.8 After shooting for a while with pocket cams I developed an itch for pin sharp photos. And a renewed interest in fixed focal lenses.

    Detail from this photo is better appreciated there.

    Also bokeh rendering best seen there.

      This is a wonderful portrait with a subject who is very beautiful in her years of gray-headedness.
