People, revisited

Anyone of you recognised her?
Was waiting outside the library and this industrious woman cleaning her balcony caught my attention. In my mind I thought what is she doing outside in this windy weather, it was VERY chilly. Then, I recognised that she was the exact woman I featured in this blog a year ago (Link) ! How nice to see her again :)

*the stripes on the wall were weak shadow which i enchanced with photofilter.

Soviet era apartments aren't they?
Great photo from you as usual. The crisp light, the sunny patches, the old woman on the balcony...

Brilliant!

Kala said...

strange coincidence but a great capture - hope she has a family to make sure she is ok

Gerald England said...

Beautiful -- she's a star even if she doesn't know it.

I love this photo! The light, colors, enhanced shadows, and the woman makes it perfect. There is LIFE in there, and she is preparing for spring, perhaps. Super.

Susan said...

I love this building the coloured panels on the balconies adds interest, as well as the shadows and the old woman. Great shot.

Kris said...

lachezar,
yup, plenty of them here. Although the more contemporary ones are slowly coming up :)

susan,
yes, the shadow was one of the reasons i decided to snap this.

carol.e,
she is , she's the earliest to do so !

Thank you all again!

I always find that these colored glass plates and concrete balconies look dreadful but your detail would have made the architect smile.

Lessie said...

Good for her! So glad to see her up and about and active. Great pic and commentery.

Mountainboy said...

That is a great shot Kris,
do you have some funky and easy method of putting your 'watermark' on your photos? Care to let me in on it?

Carraol said...

Its a very colourful picture with a touch of humanity. Great shot! Glad you are back.

Kris said...

james,
you're not the only one! Sometimes when reflected by sunlight it look better :)

Lessie,
wish i can be as industrious..my balcony is untouch since 3 months ago ,time for some clearing :)

Mountainboy,
I manually paste the watermark, that way I can design it to suit the photo. The software that i'm using is Photofiltre http://www.photofiltre.com/

or try some other free watertermark software, i've downloaded a few freewares but have yet to test it.

Thanks again all! :)
