Mrs Hermine is a very special lady aged 94. The day when I took this picture in her home, she told me stories about her life, her family, about the photo laboratory that she use to work in during 2nd world war in Vienna.
Sometimes, at the end of a phrase she fell into a little nap - closing her eyes for 5 to 10 seconds - and all over sudden, she re-opened her eyes, continuing her story as if this little time gap didn't exist.
Moments like this are so pressious - as every moment in a persons long life may be.
