Wordless Wednesday




Woman in a burqa speaks to a scribe.*
From the collection of Coe Hall, Planting Fields Arboretum, Long Island

*The picture is slightly grainy because
I wasn't allowed to use a flash when taking the picture.

I think the grainy look makes it look awesome

Strangely, I find the burka acceptable in the grainy brown tone as if it were a piece of history.

What an intriguing painting, I find myself wanting to know more about it - where is it set, when, what are they talking about...

it is a great shot, did they allow you to use a flash? Every museum/art gallery I go to they say no flash no tripod! Kinda puts a damper on things. Awesome shot Mary!

You've turned the dreaded noise into an asset here Mary. The "grain" really does add to this image. Sometimes photos are too slick. I like the color palette in this fine image too.
