Photographer's Note

This is another photo from series Passing away. I noticed that many people in age even when they smile, their eyes remain serious.

Many times when I take a photo I feel lack of movement. It's a great challenge to include in a motionless frame - the past, the present and the future. I know this woman and while shoting I noticed she's in good mood. But now looking at this photo I'm trying to find the traces of gladness on her face. I think I see them but I'm not sure where - mouth...? nose...? or really eyes...?

The one thing I'm sure - it's not so sad as previous "Passing away".

The light was difficult - electric bulb from the right and daylight from window on the back-left. That's one of reasons I decided to turn it into B&W. Finally - little sepia.
