A portrait of a life itself..

yeah that kind of expression is precious.. It is earned.. Sedated.. memories in the backyard of the eyes, very clear, trying to ooze out.. but restrained..
Precious is that what remains..
I get a feeling of suspension.. but determination too.. and then there are so many things, which are trying to emanate..
a lost longing, the whole intensity of it, only a distant iota of it remains.. a subdued anger perhaps.. a very minute hint of mockery as well perhaps..
But someone very still and frozen still..

Pls dont mind my writing this.. This may all be bullshit..

All in all, the journey of life and the process of ageing and whatever comes with it : respect, sturdiness.. but in the end again, life is not a beautiful poem.. it's just a poem..

A very powerful image..

An extraordinary self portrait...
The composition made so effective by the look on those eyes and the lines on the face... Wisdom lines? Suffering lines? Life itself...
A really remarkable result. Well done. IB
Wisdom? I wish! =)

Thank you so much for your kind words, Isabel. =)
