This is a scanned slide photograph taken in the Old Town district in Pingyao, China. I noticed these two women in a very active conversation. The woman with the white hair stepped slight behind the other woman and began to whisper. Through the viewfinder I could see the expression of the other woman change; I took the picture. I developed the final photograph in Photoshop, darkening the darker background and applying routine sharpening to the women, with no attempt to soften or enhance the lines and wrinkles in the faces.
