    i think your topic deserves a photo essay itself, rather than for critique.

    have money and health, don't have to worry about being old. No money and poor health then you have to worry.

    I hope to belong to the first category.

    interesting concept, non interesting execution. i can understand it might not be prudent to include faces but in its absence you have to be careful about composition and elements. tilted horizon doesnt work most of the time.

    thanks.

    i'd rather you take photos which tells us about the person, rather than just putting one up for critique.

    i can't see her face, i can't tell her feelings, it's just one angle, i can't feel anything.

    thanks. i'll take note of it.
    i was hoping that i'd be able to show the viewers her loneliness when she sit alone in the tv room. starring at nothing but the tv.
    i'll try again the next time i visit them

    feel that theres a lack of involvement in the pic.. maybe you should have a friendly chat with her first, get to know her story etc before taking the pic..?

    she's actually my friend's auntie. A little bit senile already, so its kinda hard to communicate with her. but its kinda saddening la. when my friend ask her what she do all day, she said 'wa kua chia' (look at cars)

    thanks for your comment nonetheless.
