I’ve photographed this old lady in her very little shop before. Her similarly cramped neighbours too. But this time I was treated to a smile that seemed bigger than the almost ludicrously small surroundings.

I love it! Her smile and OMG that shop! 😮
Very sweet, and yes, very small!
I like it there’s so much warmth in this shot. Its now one of my favorites! 🙂
Thank you! Yeah, I thought she might have been annoyed when she saw me, but her reaction was very clearly quite the opposite.
Was it because she recognized you? Sure hope so! 🙂
Haha, that would have been nice, but nah, she was utterly unaware of me taking the photo last time. Maybe I should try again in a few months, and then see if I get the same reaction!
She seems to have kawaii sumairii face on her gingham style dress.
Yeah, she does. Only noticed that when editing the photo. One of those unexpected, but lovely little extras.

Yes, that’s the spot. Not sure how long those little shops will survive, but they are wonderful to see while they do.
