Photographer's Note

A sneaky peek through the backdoor and another of my point & shoot - a 'street portrait' of an elderly
woman I found interesting, sitting quietly doing her routine household chores in an old fashioned mud brick house in Xinmen village. Caught her off guard! but I loved her fleeting look straight into the lens probably wondering why a stranger was pointing at her and I loved the fact that the source of directional light was just sufficient to illuminate her facial features under shade.

It's the kind of situation I was as after - a shot of exactly that, not a pretty face though, but she gave me the most realistic depth of feeling that I love to treasure immensely.

Hopefully this draws the eye and grips hold of one's imagination....
