Happy Smiles

There are times that I enjoy studying a photo because it tells a story. Although I do not know the story this picture tells, I can imagine. My sister took this picture when visiting a row of residences which housed tea workers in Sri Lanka. I am cued to the joy of the scene by the happy smiles and by my sister's comment about the loveliness and friendliness of the people. The tea ladies were diligent workers who shared such a beautiful air of cheerfulness and joy. What details do you observe from this picture? Can your mind fill in the gaps? Is this great-grandmother with a new great-grandchild? Do you think she cares for the infant while mother plucks the tea leaves?

    What a beautiful picture, full of colour, happiness and smiles. A lot of love can be perceived in this photograph.

  2. I think it looks like new parents introducing their new child to the grandmother. You can just see the love there.
