Wow, that's powerfully strong. Such a contrast between the women and so well captured. Even though  this old lady is not really the target audience of that poster, this kind of advertisement does surround us and it does kinda make you wonder, what people like this lady must feel like.
You were there in the right moment and turned it into a great photo :nod:

I am very interest in which thoughts people get when they see this shot... I wrote one of my as the title. Now I think it would have been better if I had chosen a title that did not include my thoughts.

Sincerely, this image impressed me!! I imagine that to the photographer too. The woman also could have been a model in her youth: who knows? Sometimes life takes a turn and change us all, other times, we dream what we were or we could be.
It's very brave staying looking to someone or something that just we'll never be, we tend to look askance, so no one think ironically 'You'll never be as what you look'
And this woman did it!!  :clap: without matter whom saw her and what they would think! :heart:

You've really captured something meaningful here. Art doesn't always have to be fun to look at. This image really upsets me... It makes me think about my own mortality. It reminds me that I'm running out of time... It just makes me sad. We have to make the most of the time we're given.

i really like this piece,but i dont think growing up is sad like everyone else is saying,its a natural part of life,something that should be accepted,doesnt mean that the person is less,but it just means they are a person like everyone else
if that makes sense

In every old person lives a younger one, that awakens every now and then... but in some this younger person never went to sleep. :)

I actually stopped naming my street shots, because I want to avoid limiting what people see. On this image I got conflicted, so I kept it.

Now this is good photo.
It really shows the 'bitter sweetness' of life and a certain sadness.
Nice work, keep it up.:)
