We visited our auntie in Mikata today, and this time again I took another B&W portrait to add to my RX1 B&W collection.
(Just like yesterdays blog entry of Yonago Obachan, Yonago Obachan was actually a KEIRIN rider, a professional track cyclist when she was 16, and still at 80 years of age, she still gets around Yonago on her bike).
Mikata Obachan is 82 years old, but is fit as a fiddle! You may not be able to notice it in the picture, but Im very surprised that her skin is in very youthful condition for her age, her skin is white and has a natural glow as if she is wearing make up, but she doesn’t.
Actually did you know that by analysing skin of approximately 80,000 people, Shimane prefecture has been reported to have the most beautiful skin nationwide, read it here on madeinmatsue’s blog for more details.
These are a few pictures of the ornaments displayed around her guest room.
