Is it because I am a sentimentalist Irishman ?

      No it isn't just you, maybe. :) I like the expressions on their faces, especially the girl. The angle of her face and her somber, relaxed expression reminds me of a renaissance religious painting.

      Thanks, I appreciate feedback, Mary Lou is a controversial Sinn Fein politician, known as well for her good looks, here in Ireland.
      I see something in this image, that few have seen, I was beining to wonder was it just me ??

      It's a great shot...their facial expressions seem to be speaking to us. You can almost feel the woman's pain.

      I don't know anything about the woman, but she has a haunted look, strengthened by the attitude of the girl next to her.
