Photographer's Note

One more portrait from Metsovo...The old lady, wearing her traditional local dress, after the Sunday mass went to the small fruit market of the town located just becides the main square, to buy grapes.
Serious face and spartan decorations on the dress are the main characteristics of this remarkable mountain people living high in Pindos mountains. Their lifes, especially in the harsh winters, is tough as they have to fight the hard nature elements.

Photo transformed in B&W. Light sepia toned in PS.
