Iranian hospitality is not a legend.
I was invited several days in her familly in a curious little ocre village 200km north-east of Esfaran . I say curious because most of his inhabitant have great social position: medecine, ingenior,musiscian, mathematitian, informatitian and live in the capital Theran (all famillies I met had one member abroad)..
When holidays comes the quite little village see famillies arriving and wearing traditionnal cloths .
She is listening her grand-son singing .

hey...this is penpa dolma..remember me? You introduced me to this site when you came to dharamsala for my exhibition..and here I am giving you points...
Do put some more pictures in here so that I could give you suggestions for your improvement.
I liked this picture and funnily more interesting tha portrait...I found the shadow of the woman back intriguing. I think that alone could make a very god composition.
Take care and see ya more in the room.

I like the old lady's expression, her hands and her concentration. And also the photo is interestingly colorful.
