  1. I wonder if you are working on an abstract level with this image. The coming out of the dark can be perplexing, which is exactly the expression on her face. Splendid as always.
    As the weather puts a damper on winter treks I will spend some time and catch up with older posts.

  2. Once again, Joshi, you’ve caught something so important in this picture of the weathered face and eyes that seem to ask Why and Am I all alone? Can you see me? Am I visible to you? Will you join me? What will you do now that you’ve looked into my eyes? Thank you.

  3. Did this woman mind having her picture taken? What did she get out of it?
    I wonder because I think she is poor, and doesn’t feel worthy somehow. Her eyes have a look of innocence, though her face show the ravages of time and a hard life. <3
