A very good expression captured here. Her mind in another place while she peels potatoes maybe.

Quote:A very good expression captured here. Her mind in another place while she peels potatoes maybe.

It would be fruit she's peeling, likely to make up little bags of mixed fruit they commonly sell on the street. This would be her life unless she finds a man to marry her and usually all they get from that effort is a child to support along with themselves.
Dora - love this picture and the words from Les Misérables. - she may be thinking of a man to marry; yet, one cannot read her mind but thoughts came into my mind when looking at your picture and reading your reply to Sandy

In my mind I’m only the one that’s working
In life dreaming is for the one who’s yearning
To the one with a job and working to earn
Some money for food, rent but not to burn
Then life is worth living and the time to dream

Well spoken, Graham. I think every young woman is born believing some day her prince will come and that is what makes them so susceptible to being deceived and left in a worse situation then they were before.

An excellent candid shot Dora. To me she is thinking 'is life always going to be like this?'

Val
That’s a powerful image Dora. I like your reference to Les Miserable.

My rage is gone,
And I am struck with sorrow.

She many be stuck with more than sorry,
Very possibly Dora.
That quote (and your comment) reminds me of a line from an old radio programme (50 Years)

Joules:- "We do all the favourites, Hamlet, The Tempest, As they like it"
K.H. - "Isn't that 'As you like it?'"
Joules - "Well not really but live and let live I say".
