A photo of my wifes Grandmother, clearly enthralled with my father-in-laws Sunday afternoon banter.

My wife doesn't like the photo "it makes her look like a corpse" I keep being told.

But I can assure you no old people were harmed during the making of this photo...

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    I see your wife's point, but it's a f*cking great shot!

    I agree with her too, but it's really nice. The depth of field is pretty sweet.

    You've captured "old age". My Dad looked a lot like her before he died at 90. Something to look forward to!! Good portrait, although a bit depressing. (I may be less than 20 year away from looking like this.)

    I can also see your wife's point. Maybe the word isn't "enthralled". How about bored out of her skull - I can imagine...The same old story?

    Age is so painful to look at, well captured!
