An alternate version of a previously posted image, for Grouser :-), and yes sir I do like this better with the modern day road cropped out. My thanks for the suggestion !

@Captain Guildive Ajoupa: Merci !

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

This version works well too ! out of time !

@Anna Cherer: I like them both, but this one a bit more for its time machine aspect ;-)

Gérard Flayol from Allauch, France

I prefer the first one too: it better situates the character in her living environment.

@Gérard Flayol: I like seeing the jarring cultural contrast of their "isolated" old world existence surrounded by all the modern madness of our societal structure. That is why in my first posted frame I wanted to include the contemporary road adjacent to their farm. There are merits in both ways of seeing it, and thanks for your opinion !

I still marvel at this lifestyle. The field behind the lady still intrigues me.

Now she doesn't look like David or Eli to me,
So I guess it must be a hand delivery :)

Excellent imagen. The saturated colors make the imagen to belong to a pasta time. Great work

I have not received a letter for a long time. Always by email. A shame. I liked the letters and write them... Great shot!
