Born in 1928.

Inspiration, Leica 28mm Elmarit ASPH f/2.8, Leica M Monochrom (CCD Lives!), Life's Little Moments, Street, Teaching point

I seldom engage in street photography, because moments like this are few and far between.

However, if one is able to capture an instance like this — a moment of serendipity — and manage to frame it in a nice way, it’s a euphoric experience.

  1. …was she really though? I mean did you ask her? 🙂

    Anyway, phenomenal capture…Really a striking photograph. That 28 seems to be a great find for you.

    All the best,

    1. Mark, I asked her after I took the photo.

      She confirmed her birth date but I – not satisfied – requested some identification and she complied. I can assure you she is 85 years old.

      Overall, a good day for everybody, including octogenarian buildings and women.


  2. Très Cher Peter,

    Here is a picture I would have liked to!
    Really the type of picture that I also like …

    Some would need a 300 mm … But you, with your 28 mm, being the core issue, the image takes on a whole different scale …

    Congratulations for this great achievement!
