The Lacemaker

By KingBee
Bosa, Sardinia, some years back. As well as making lace in her kitchen, this enterprising old soul, dressed in traditional widow's attire, was also selling tomatoes, as evidenced by the box, lower right. She was not in the least perturbed by my intrusion with a camera.

Shot on Yvonne's Canon A460, helped along in LR4 and PSE10.

To me it looks fine in mono Bob, she must have dammed good eyesight.

A well toned mono shot Bob.
And it looks like she is selling something else with these plastic containers in the BG !!
