Thank you for sharing this great photo. Again you have done a fine job of capturing an image that tells a story in so many details. See the lace trim on the bottom of this lady's apron? It matches the lace trim on the bottom of the doll's dress, which leads me to believe she made both items. The colors of the ribbons are very pretty. She not only has them braided in the doll's hair but in her own hair as well. Obviously she is proud of her handiwork as evidenced by the fact that she is wearing it herself. The composition is well done, the focus is spot on and the colors are vibrant. Great job. Smile Amanda

I don't like seeing old people working. It reminds me of how I have taken my youth for granted. It also makes me wish that I was born into their generation, as the world is a much nastier place now. It's a good shot, but uncomfortable to look at.

Thanks for your comments. I like a photo that may elicit different thoughts or emotions. She was amazing to watch at work. I did purchase one of her dolls for my niece, the doll I bought had red hair and a different dress. In fact, every single one of her dolls was different! Sadly, I think she works very hard for little money. Some vendors have small booths in this outdoor market, but others, like this woman, work in other areas. Here, she is seated on some concrete stairs. We paid her extra for our little doll, thanked her for allowing me to snap her pic, and wished her well. She said God bless you in Spanish and smiled. She really was a sweet lady.
