We'll start with my favorite portrait, Afghan Girl. The first time I saw this picture was on the cover of National Geographic, and it was taken by Steve McCurry. Her name is Sharbat Gula at around 12 years old. I do believe she's the loveliest young girl I've ever seen. I remember taking a few moments and really observing it. Her eyes, her face......this is an exceptional picture, in my opinion.
Jess loves this picture, American Girl In Italy. I can see why it's her favorite because I like it also. It was taken by Ruth Orkin, and it's such an interesting picture that I notice something different every time. Jess actually has this picture hanging up in her home. Every time I visit her, I see it in her living room and smile.
This Norman Rockwell painting, Golden Rule, speaks to Nel in so many ways. The special words written on the picture really says it all.
