“New York Pretzel lady” by Bernard Safran

It’s very romantic frame,I guess everyone of us in life saw a similar figure. He uses warm colours to mark and accentuate this sense of heat and humanity. The old lady bundled dares the cold and gives us almost a smile. You can see the wrinkles and the signs of time but she looks quiet and cheering. The picture is setted in New York but it’s another New York,not Manhattan,not the New York of the lights and spotlights,but the New York of the ordinary people that reflects on our eyes the majesty of the ordinariness.
Sometimes we are surrounded by many of these gleeful frames but we are not able anymore to capture and enjoy them.
