Solidly contemplative. I like very much your title, so simply in sync with the plastic shopping bag: any other I can think of would be de trop.

This is a great picture. It is an example of how pictures can tell a story.

Beautiful. The way that the colored areas appear almost neon, is amazing. It is sad and shows us a side of life that is depressing but realistic. I find this emotive and a sad statement about the life some people have to live. BRAVO

I like the idea that she could stop off at her church on the way back from shopping, and line up her groceries right on the floor next to her. France is a largely Catholic country, and their practice of that faith must be more informal and unselfconscious than how I remember my own experience as a child, when a visit to the church was a formal occasion, demanding best clothes and (most importantly) safety in numbers. Taking the groceries would have been out of the question!


Thanks for the comment!
I was very touched by the sight of this tired old woman hunched on a chair in St.Severin, obviously making a stop on the way home. It felt that she really came to the church to gather strength to finish her journey, and I don't mean just a trip to groceries.

Really nice tones and feeling in this one. I just finished reviewing your portfolio and found some very nice work. You'll be taking home some more ribbons soon. Keep it up!
