Portobello Hat Lady

Well, I'm back today with the Portobello series. This lady has been selling in the market for yonks, well over 50yrs I think she said. Wow! She also remarked that she couldn't understand why I would want to take a picture of her when there was so many pretty young things around lol, I simply smiled and replied that I loved her hat. It's not the camera, but who's behind the camera. -Anonymous Back tomorrow! Skee

Wouldn't you love to know if she saw the Queen Mum as her hero! Kinda reminds me of her, come to think of it. smile

I'm sure there was a lot of color from the hats but I do like this in B&W, especially since you did it so well, Skee.
Nice one Skee !!!
aahhh women smile
she does really look elegant and regal smilesmile
Now images like these make it worthwhile to embark on series like these. smile
Very nice composition, I would love to see some more details on the ladies faces though, taking down the shadows a bit may help.
tres beau noir et blanc!
