I received an absolutely lovely comment on one of my Flickr pics recently:

What a pleasure to see the subtle but striking changes from your first photographs to this one, you have changed into such a pretty woman 👍

Looking back on my photos over the past 10 years (have I really been on Flickr that long?), I have to agree – I have come such a long way since those initial faltering steps on my journey towards being the person that I really am.

I can’t help wondering, though, whether I am reaching my peak. I’m not getting any younger and old age is going to start to catch up with me soon. 🙁

But then I look at the wonderful pics that Janet Rainer posts and it gives me hope that an older woman can still look wonderful. So who knows what the future holds?
