Default Young or Old -- Portrait of Barbara shaum

This woman now in her ninties is still working as a leather artist. You can Google her. Her store is in the building I just moved into, and I've known her for over forty years.

Despite her age, she's as sharp as she ever was; drinks, smokes, and carries on. She's an absolutely wonderful person, and here she is with two of a fresh crop of interns, learning the trade of leather working.

Chato, while I like this shot a lot, I'm not sure you could call it a portrait. I'd love to see a tighter shot of her, perhaps engaged in her work.

True, not classic portrature in form but certainly a wonderful moment caught in time.
