Lovely photo.

My Mother had several picture done in this style... She always looked so Elegant and Beautiful.

Pat said...

Parsnip: it's as if they are photographed through gossamer onto velvet - no hard lines and often the same hair style and pose.

Kath said...

That is a fantastic photograph. You can see so much in her eyes...

Pat said...

Pat: I think she is quite luscious.

Rashbre: how could the Sha let her go -just because she was infertile.

She was beautiful.

Those men are something else. She was right to leave and not agree to his taking 'another' wife.

[I know thanks to stories my mother tells me...].
