Unlucky for Some

Such sadness and suffering in her eyes. When she finished her coffee and cake she arose painfully to her feet and with the aid of a walking stick she limped and shuffled away. Before she left our eyes met across the large wooden table. We both smiled and exchanged niceties. I wish we had the time to have sat and talked for a while.

Photographed '...from my usual (indoor) seat...' at the Crèma Espresso Bar in Port Macquarie, mid-north coast of NSW, Australia.

Dennis, this is a powerful image. I could feel her emotion when first looking upon your image. Great image.

Your Crema Espresso Bar portraiture is invariably superb. This may be one of the best if not THE BEST!

This is just an amazing portrait, Dennis. The beauty, yes beauty, of human emotion. You may have been the best thing that happened to her that day - a good man with a kind word.
