Excellent candid portrait, Nikki, although her expression does not seem to convey any sense of enjoyment, given the party situation.

This makes me wonder what's going on in her mind.... her memories.. Christmas can bring the good and the bad ones flooding back, each can be equally as painful and beautiful, bless her.

Its a beautiful candid study Nikki, timeless in mono, you have a real talent for these x

A exquistie capture of so many details, sharp and clear-- but it is the questions and probable answers that carry that complete the image for the viewer!

Stop and think about it!

Have seen this contemplative expression on many an older person's face - especially so in the nursing home where my mother-in-law lived. There is a lot to think back on......

What a fine Portrait Nikki. Even though she is so old and wrinkled she has the most exquisite nails. I wonder what is going through her mind . I know happy and sad thoughts go through my mind each Christmas .

Now I only have a trickle of water coming out of the cold tap and can't use the shower. Hope you have a great NEW YEAR xxxx
