A 28mm wide angle black and white portrait of smiling old woman in Trivandrum, Kerala, India
Smiling old lady | Trivandrum, Kerala, India

When I started taking her photo, she was adamant that she would not smile because that would mean showing her teeth. Somehow, I managed to get this cute, bright-eyed smile from her at the end! To find out more about photos like this from the 28mm Portraits Project, click here.

  1. Lovely that you chose black and white for these obviously bright eyes; it reminds us that light, as well as color, may comprise “bright.”

  2. I love what you do..we are all unique and I love the way you are displaying it. ty for such wonderful pictures.

  3. Beautiful capture :) JD. Her smile and eyes shows soft, warm and caring nature. Excellent work :) Thanks for sharing :)

  4. You have captured this lady and this moment beautifully. The warmth of her watery eyes and her bashful smile, the focus and angle you have used all just draw me in to the picture and the personality of this lovely lady shines through. Lovely job!

    Your photographs are always exceptional.
    In the portraits, more than the eyes, you can photograph the soul.
