    It says so much: today's technology; a wonderful link between three (4?) generations; a dangerous and bloody lifestyle vanished from almost the entire rest of the globe; and it's a WONDERFUL portrait!!! Especially of grandma or great grandma or great-great grandma.....and there is a very strong likelihood that she speaks either no or very little English.
    This is from today's (Sat 8 Nov 014) Alaska Dispatch News; the two family members are celebrating the bowhead whale that others in their family killed; the unfortunate creature is, of course, in the background.

    Love that face!

    If you go to the link - Alaska News, Politics, Outdoors, Science and Events | Alaska Dispatch - there are more photos from photographer Gregory Bull; unfortunately, in the presented slideshow this particular shot is cropped so that the all-important smartphone is cropped out. And, of course, it's not really recommended for those who have a problem with whale killing.
