A quiet smile

This portrait was one of a series that included an earlier post, A private moment.  In each case there is an enigmatic quality about the sitter’s expression


With this image I experimented to discover whether moving the face within the frame affects the viewer’s interpretation of the smile.  Obviously, the captions below are purely personal suggestions.


1     Leaving friends following an amusing incidwnt


2     ‘I’ll close my eyes and you hide’.


3     Secretly watching from an upper window as her child plays happily with playmates.
