The Tale of An Old Lady
It was a cold and windy evening, I arrived at Dayitang village, or more
fondly known as the Big Fishing Pond. After wandering in the village, I
saw this old lady. She was shivering. She was helplessly keeping herself
warm with the last glimpse of the sunshine.
When we made contact, I couldn't help but notice her eyes. Her left eye
had obviously suffered from some severe eye diseases, while the right
deteriorating, I could tell she had probably lost most of her sight.
Despite the fact that I am a total stranger, she still put up a very warm
smile, albeit a brief moment, but enough to warm my heart.
I sought her permission to photograph her, she nodded, but I could only
manage a few clicks. My sympathy took the better part of me.
This was the shot when the light miraculously hit her left eye, I thought
God was showing mercy on her.
