Gathering firewood


Really good!

Thank you Heather and Richard for you comments, they are much appreciated.

Like the way you have captured the moment Paul. Lovely expression and interesting detail in the figure.

Thank you Romila and Carole I appreciated your comments very much. Carole I was attracted to the photo because of the way the lady looked, she seemed almost in a dream world, life must have been very difficult in those days.

I like this picture very much as it reminds me of my Grandma, she used to take me out when I was just a tot to collect wood for the fire. Thanks for the memory.

Pleased you like it Frances, and that I recalled memories for you.

Thank you Andrea for your kind comment.
