Just One Person from around the World: Romania

Today, I’m off to Miklosaure, a small village where we stayed in rural Transylvania, where I came across this lady who was happy for me to take her photograph – such a characterful face. She was soaking up the mid day sun, and I hadn’t the heart to ask her to move, so the shadows falling on her face are a bit obtrusive:

  1. A lovely photo Sue 😊😊

  2. I remember that lady. Such a lovely portrait, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Now, doesn’t she just look like the nicest lady? And very happy too!

    Such a lovely smile – it cheered me up today when things are all going wrong, from telephones to computers!

  5. That’s delightful. And far better to catch the moment rather than get her to move.

  6. She looks so very happy 😀

  7. She obviously has a sunny disposition, Sue 🙂 🙂

  8. She looks lovely, I don’t find the shadows a problem. I like the muted colours in her shirt.

  9. wonderful portrait 🙂

  10. Oh you’re pernickety! The shadows are where she was and don’t detract at all. I completely admire your people shots. I never dare.

  11. And the textures too – splendid. I’m revisiting my Chatwin book – and here you are, doing Chatwinesque things, although you’re not such a poser (except when you want, to get rid of shadows!)
