I like the way this photo was colored. Judging by the title, what I got from the picture is that a woman may be wearing clothes of her time (lacey, sophisticated), but her hair suggests that the woman herself isn't as traditional. Like underneath all those clothes is a woman so special or so colorful that tradition is merely a mask she wears as a mans to get by in the larger world. While, the practice may not be new, that matters less once you see the story that the picture tells.
As for the stroll, that gives me an idea that the woman may just be bringing herself into a boring town, and the moment she leaves, it's like the world around her will never be the same.
