Meeting Ms Leila
“I hope one day to meet you and allow you to take pictures of me that shows my life story embedded on my face and hands. I am 64 years old and proud of it.”
I found myself driving to Carigara one fine Sunday afternoon of October 2, 2011 to finally meet this wonderful lady who volunteered to have her pictures taken. We have never met before, but have come to know one another through this blog.
The purpose of her trip back to her hometown is one that brings great sadness if the story were to be told. Not today. This day is about friendship.
How can 64 years be summed up in one day? and through photographs?
Thank you for the friendship and trust, Ms Leila.
