I never cease to be blown away by the choices made by the ladies at Art Creations for our Friday challenge. This is a most beautiful photo and the first thing I noticed were the strong hands. The lady is frail and old but her hands appear to be so powerful. I imagine that she has lived a very tough life on a farm with little time for anything but hard work. I have placed her, leaning on a rusty gate, dreaming about what might have been. I hope there were joys for her. There is a lovely quote by Mark Twain "Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been". I hope this is true for her.
Thanks so much for this wonderful challenge. (Background stockphoto by Jen Ulasiewicz. Photograph of old lady from Art Creations Friday).
