It is the cherry picking season in Albania and I was invited out to the country to ...pick / eat cherries !!!!
Living in the family was an amazingly beautiful old woman who had spent her whole life in this one area living and working the land .She was 86 and still climbing trees to pick the juicy and biggest !!!
Duly inspired to capture images of experience , the next day I went around town and captured these images.
I caught this animated discussion ; everyone has time to stop and tell their story !!! even cars stop in the middle of the highway to talk , kiss relatives and exchange news .
Old /not so old faces that tell a story are fascinating to me ; the old men have a wonderful cragginess, that is very photogenic
