Gran #2 (B&W)

By electricsoup  
This is one image in a series of around 50 portrait images I did of my Gran recently.

I wanted to see what people thought of these and perhaps offer something different to the usual abstract imagery I put on here.

Look forward to your comments and fingers crossed for clicks. Hope you like 'em. Thanks for looking.

I think you are doing a very wonderful thing in recording her in her obvious age. She looks quite frail, and you will cherish these in years to come. I like the composition you have used, and also the realism of the room. Altogether well done.

This is a good one. It conveys very well the atmosphere that I know from my grans at old age. I like the composition too although you could do without the doorpost on the right I guess. It's good that you grayscaled this, it makes this a bit quieter that a color version that with this angled composition would not work maybe. Bert

As a black and white this one seems to capture the frailty and loneliness of your Gran. A powerful image.

A moving shot which for me conveys a strong sense of isolation and loneliness - well done on a deceptively simple image which says much ...

Susie :o)
