Wow, I didn't expect a ribbon! Thanks everyone for your votes and comments. The old woman is my mother’s grandma (my grandpa’s mother). Her mother (my grandpa’s grandma) died 20 years ago and she was 106 years old. I still have vivid memories from my grand- grand- grand-mother.

This is a beautiful portrait. I'm sure she has many stories to tell.

I adore this image...its honesty moves me. I have just lost my 97yr old grandmother a month ago, which makes this all the more poignant for me. Congrats on your ribbon.

Great portrait. The lighting, contrast and textures are very good. Makes me wonder what those old eyes have witnessed in her time. Well done!
