Daily Deviation

Given 2009-01-09
Ever since I saw Doris by ~LeahPhotography back in April 2007 that the face and expression of this woman marked my soul. Today, more than one year after seeing it for the first time, I still get the same strange attraction towards this photo! I just can't stop looking at this and while I do so I begin to think about my grandma' and her past and about myself and my future and about us, the human kind, and our present day conditions... But enough babbling - I just hope you enjoy Doris' portrait as much as I do! ( Featured by Helewidis )

My own grandmother had this, it's absolutely heart-breaking. It was after her fire.

Very touching indeed! She reminds me so much of the patients that we see so many of daily in the Cardiac Cath Lab where I work. They're all young in their soul and her eyes seem to reflect that. Great portrait!

wow, this is beautiful. tear up inside when i see elderly people in this state, trying not to worry them by crying on the outside, and i'm so used to doing only that, i find myself barely tearing up. but i do act polite, and help them if needed or desired. it seems to me, that as happy as she is, she's holding back tears, not to mention it's her second week at the nursing at the nursing home. please let god bless her soul, and let her live happily for the rest of her life and in heaven.

even though she's smiling, look at the sadness in her eyes. you can see that maybe she is reflecting on her youth, or reflecting on what the future brings.
very touching shot.
great job.

I just buried my dad today so...this hits me somewhere but I'm not sure where and don't even know how. I might've cried but I've spent all my tears.
