Superb portrait

Hi Kenzo.

What a high quality photo again, thank you for sharing with us. I wonder if the girl knows how famous she's becoming if this makes photo of the week?

A good start of the new year, may it bring many more good photos to you!

Reminds me of...

the photo of the Afghan girl Sharbat Gula that photographer Steve McCurry captured for the June 1985 issue of National Geographic. Congratulations.

Re: Reminds me of...

Darn, I was going to say the exact same thing.
Steve McCurry tracked her down in the past while; she's aged, of course, but she still has those eyes.
