The Old Lady of Madrid

Way back in 2003 I visited my friend Cachu and her family in Madrid.
I had a great time there and took a load of photos but it was months later before I posted any photos.
This is a shot of an old woman sitting in a park enjoying the autumn sunshine somewhere in Madrid. Unfortunately I was quite far away from her and had to use the “digital zoom” of my Sony 717 to get this close so the quality isn’t the best but I really liked this image.

    I wonder what she was thinking, there is so much sadness in her face.
    You have an excellent blog, loved going through your work.

    I’d say it was more experience the way her face looks. She looks so, deep in thought. Great capture.
