SANTA FE, NM - United States

Really beautiful portrait !!

Londrigan, Vi - Australia

Sandi, thank you for sharing this beautiful portrait. I've just spent some time reading all the wonderful comments, you've really touched people with this lovely shot. I think that I agree with Vadim, that at the moment of this shot your grandmother was dwelling on another time.

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Yes, I think so too. Thank you for your thoughtful comment, Linda!

Zoetermeer - Netherlands

Just stumbled over your grandmother once more....had to shed her beauty over the viewers again !!

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Thank you so much for stopping by Michel!

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Lovely portrait !

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Thank you Maya!

New Brunswick, NJ - United States

Outstanding portrait! There are so much emotions and at the same time so much of unspoken story, probably the story that was carried through the long-long road, called life... Her eyes show that she is not in the current moment maybe in past, maybe in the future but definitely not in the present...

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Yes, you are so right, Vadim....thank you for your lovely comment!

Whitesville, NY - United States

Oh Sandi, what treasure. The long stare of a lifetime lived can weigh so much. She's a lucky woman to have family who care so much for her and a grand daughter with a heart sensitive enough to recognize what she is seeing. This is so much more than a photograph.

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Ah thank you for your heartfelt comment Christian!

Vail, AZ - United States

Being trapped in an aging body can be the most challenging thing we face as a human being, Sandi....once one reaches age 45 or so, life seems to go in fast forward mode. Five, then ten year blocks of time go by like just a year in younger days. All of the sudden you reach retirement age and in a blink, way beyond!......FAV

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Oh isn't that so true, Jerry! When you are young you feel as though you have forever, and then suddenly there is just a sliver of time left on this earth.

Columbus, OH - United States

Sandi, I have to say...this image always touches me so....I always end up with tears. I do wonder what she is thinking and feeling...maybe who she is missing? The older I get, the more I treasure those who are older than me...leading the way with grace and dignity!....fv

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Ah, I agree, Karen...I have finally reached the age where I recognize my elders for the precious and wise teachers that they are.
