    Hi Guys :D
    I recently visited my home town and needless to say that retro FujiX100 attracted crowd . My 110 year old grandmother was quite curious to know how it works and here is a shot taken with GF5 and 45 mm 1.8 .

    An enquiring mind is probably key in keeping her going to this age :)

    The second shot is wonderful. Love the hands. I really hope you found a few seconds for some portraits of your grandmother. What a subject.

    Thanks a lot Gordon . I did find plenty of time to shoot some more portraits . She was interested in everything and wanted me to leave my Ipad with her . The best thing is that she is in good health and there is no sign of dementia . But I imagine it's quite tough to live so long as she has already lost two daughters,one son and one son in-law .Anywat that's life and we all wish her good health .
