The Woman with Flowers

This picture was taken in Northwest Arkansas. I was actually driving around helping my girlfriend with a photography project when we came across this elderly couple working in a flower farm. We stopped to ask if we could take pictures of the flowers, but I caught this instead. Neither her nor her husband spoke very much English, but they were friendly and welcoming, and this shot encapsulates the comfort and nostalgia that I felt when I talked to her.
