Why do I like this ?

Is it because I am a sentimentalist Irishman ?
but, this image of Mary Lou McDonald MEP and her daughter, at a Sinn Fein remembrance service at my local Dublin graveyard, is one of my favorite images so far this year …

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.
