Sweet old lady


A sweet old lady waiting at the local busstand on the country-side.

Actually I know that old people don't like to get their photo as they are afraid that they are too ugly with all the wrinkles in their face normally so enforced by a photo, but if you tackle this I know it is still possible to show their beauty at their age.

So enjoy the beauty of old age, taken from a long distance (145mm x 1,3sensor= 190mm) natural, not disturbing her.

Canon EOS 1D Mark II ,Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

A lovely reticent shot in vibrant saffron colours.
I like it, Oochappan. I was in Chennai 2 years ago, and have fond memories of the city and its people. Thanks for sharing.

A little bit oversharpenned, but a nice portrait.
