Personalized

I'll bet she did that hand embroidery and applique in her spare time. Possibly to personalize a hand-me-down from an older sibling.

The window to the soul

Her eyes say it all. A wonderful fascinatingly powerful image. I wonder what became of her?

Her Face Jumps Out of the Picture

The way he focused on the plane of her face, with her body in low focus and the background completely obscured creates an amazing effect.

Wow

That is a lovely show of freckles. She has a wonderful face. Too bad we can't find out who she was and what she accomplished.

It is Haunting

I agree with Dave

Powerful

What an incredibly powerful photo. I am at a loss for words.

[I feel the same way. It's my favorite of the past week, even though it got the fewest views of the 10 I posted that day. - Dave]
