Timeworn


The prompt for todays Sunday Creative over at the very talented Madeline Bea's blog is Timeworn. As soon as I read that I knew what photograph so represented this for me.

I went to Morocco a couple of months ago and there was an obligatory stop at an argan oil farm where this wonderful old lady was sitting on the floor with her bowl in front of her, grinding the fruit from the argan tree. We were told that she was in her 90's and would happily pose for the cameras and we just needed to leave some money for her when we left. She was so happy and looked so wonderful and timeworn and had one of the most interesting faces I have seen for a long while.
