"Seek ye counsel of the aged for their eyes have looked on the faces of the years and their ears have hardened to the voices of Life. Even if their counsel is displeasing to you, pay heed to them."  Gibran, Kahlil  Portrait of a 90 year old man.Tunisia by United Nations Photo

First of all, I love this picture. The expression of the subject evokes very strong emotions even though it is in B&W. The photo also uses a shallow depth of field by placing the emphasis on the sharpness of the man's wrinkles and his hands while blurring the hard lines of the back ground.

The freckled doll face self portrait of this beautiful female photographer. Jean: Its a very heavily-based face emotion portrait. It captures people's face and very personaly also intimate too.

So much depth in this portrait. Love it.

In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. Runway models have nothing on her. The age and wisdom along with the graceful beauty and power of this woman is just stunning. I would love to sit and talk with her

“I know a 'face' where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
