...I was a diver with a stunning figure...

Wonderful character shot Danilo! This poor woman has trouble getting around. I can tell by her badly swallen ankles. Nice shot! #118409

Alisha May Furbish April 17, 2004

Very nicely done- a woman who has lived life and is now seemingly content. Fantastic capture:) #488635

Danilo Piccioni April 17, 2004

thank Lori and Alisha.
I had a hard time tring to get her picture, I assume she has been photographed many times, but when you are old and not pretty anymore, you don't like to have your pictures taken.
So, I pretended to take a photo in the opposite direction, only this time I pivoted all the way the coolpix lens, and shot her from behind my back. #488678

I think she's beautiful. Oh the stories she could probably tell us....
Wonderful shot! #488805

Now, now Danilo! Congratulations on your fabulous portrait. Be kind to ladies who are past their prime or they will put an evil curse on you and turn you into a warty frog! LOL #917924

I like the juxtaposition of the flowers on her dress and the angles in the door and on the street. Wonderful! #2289589
