Mosquito and Salme

Photo and caption by Kaido Haagen

According to the data from the latest census, there were 127 people living in Estonia whose age was over a hundred. One of them was my great-aunt Salme. Back when she was young, taking photos was quite an ordeal. Because of the low sensitivity of the photo materials, the model had to be as still as possible. Even though her hearing isn't what it used to be, she patiently waited for the click of the shutter and then brushed away the annoying mosquito that had landed on her eyebrow.
