There’s a somewhat frightening amount of power evident in the cant of that woman’s head, the shape of her eyebrows and lips, the buttoned-up-tight of her jacket. Whew. What an image. Look at her size and assurance, in relation to the other three small, tentative women who need eyeglasses. I’ll bet she’s grading them as examiners, and they’re hoping that having that huge automobile in between them will protect them from her if their efforts fall short. Sorry, I’m rambling, but I could go on and on. Thanks for this one!
