After her journey to India.

I really have no word to thank `rhapsouldize for choosing my picture for the today DD!!
It's very important to me, first of all because that picture means a lot, it was the day of her return from India, she had a lot of trouble with healt, so for me It was very comforting to see her again.
And last but not least, because it's a good period for my work and this DD is another push to do better...

Thanks with :heart:

i love this photograph for so many reasons, and i think i might bore you with them.
she's so cute, just how you would imagine a grandmother to be, but in this case, an Aunt. she has that friendly look, but you know she wouldn't hesitate to lay it on anyone who hurt her family.
second, her skin. it's colour & texture is so great. like she got more and more beautiful with age, like there are secrets and stories buried in her wrinkles.
and lastly her eyes. they're so beautiful, like they've seen so much, so much bad, many good. maybe seen things they shouldn't have, or things they didn't want.

the daily deviation is well deserved. riveting piece.

I lost this comment, and an answer 2 years after is a little strange... anyway.
I appreciate what you say in your comment, I think you hit the right concepts.
I beg you pardon for my huge delay...but, better late than never!
