    Oh, wow. This brings tears to my eyes. Talk about a ‘character’. A whole life opens up in that face, that apron and too-big sweater, the way she holds her hands. I want to give her something. I wonder if she’s happy. Where was this taken, Allyson?

  2. Elizabeth says:

    From the writing on the bucket and something about the woman herself, I am guessing this is in Spain? She does have a wonderful face, and there is also a story in the contrast between the vivid flowers, her burnished hair and bright apron, and the dingy greys of the buckets and her cardigan. Beautiful!

  3. What a gorgeous picture Allyson. The colours, the flowers, the light, but above all that woman. What an expression you’ve captured. She has an intelligent face.

  4. Cheryl says:

    Her eyes are mesmerizing … what sights she has seen; what stories she could tell! Love this picture, Allyson.

  5. Allyson Latta says:

    From Christine Barbetta:

    “I love the woman in today’s photo — so many stories to tell.”
