I have taken this shot four months back when she was alive. She was 92 years old, . She had lost her husband 12 years ago. Her husband was an ex-army officer.
They were the most beautiful, humble and gentle couple. together they have done lots of things. they were the center of attraction in every family and social gathering.
but from the past 12 years she was missing her partner. The feel of lonliness was killing her everyday. i still remember she was discussing so many things about her husband.

Now she had no charm left, she had seen glorious days with her partner, she had told me that how desperate she wants to meet her husband as soon as possible. and this march 18, 2008 she left us all to meet her beloved.
May God bless her soul.
friends she was my grandmother

Hi Manuj,
This is a beautiful homage to your grandmother, very respectful and full of signification.
Photographically speaking, your use of the b&w, the fact that she don't look straight to the camera, the light coming from the side, the almost invisible BG, the incredible expression in her face make a perfect portrait. You can be proud of that photo as you are proud of her. Bravo !

Namastey Manuj
this is incredible, no more words to say, i can read so many things in her eyes. good portrait, i wonder was she unaware of your presence? she is just lost in her thoughts.


hi Manuj

92 is a good number and I can see the signs it shows. But life is just a passing, so while we are on that path, what we choose to do with it has all the wisdom that we may or may not know until it is too late.

Making a portrait of someone like her is very endearing. This is a great shot with a good note.

I only ask one thing, Manuj, add her name to your title of 'waiting', she deserves a name :)

tfs, bill

Hello Manuj
A lovely tribute to your grandmother, and from this I am guessing that the pain of loosing her is still very deep.
You captured her beautifully showing the loneliness in her eyes.
Well done and tfs

Simply a wonderful black and white portrait and a touching photographers note to go along with it.

Superb detail, this is powerful and emotional.

Hi Manuj,

Good composition, and the looks are decisive.
For the image, B/W makes the most feels..
For the memories,
For their beautiful life abode,

My prayers..
Hare Krishna..


Hello Manuj,
I love the glow in her eyes. A wonderful b&w portrait. May she rest in peace. Best regards, Danilo

Working with seniors I see this everyday, when one goes and the other is so lonesome without them, longing to be together again. A very beautiful and emotional portrait of your dear grandma. Excellent expression, and I love the b&w for this. TFS and have a good week!

Hi Manuj
Very powerful portrait of your Gran. You have caught a lot of emotion in this image, and a wonderful tribute to her in your note.

Im sure she has been blessed, and is with her husband now.

Hi Manuj,
Very beautiful portrait and touching note!
The luminous B&W is a good choice to present her. It give a timeless mood and, in this way, you will keep her image with you for a long time!
Excellent sharpness and great range of grey tones. Congratulations! Annie


Amazing work as always. I simply can't take my eyes off her sad eyes. I am sure that meeting her husband again maybe can send this sadness away. Your note was so beautiful. Words that come from the heart for a very important person in your lives. Thank you so much for sharing
Kind regards
