At least they CAN walk, even if a little aid is needed. Hope I'm still on my feet when I get in the "golden" years.

Memphis MOJO said...

I like how you blurred the sides, so the eye goes right to the subject(s).

Jack said...

I like the focus on the genteel gentleman and his escort. A good photo.

Sharon Creech said...

Ah, nice.

Your choice in post processing really underscores the rapid pace of the world around them and their much slower, mindful speed of locomotion.

bravo très beau filé, j'adore cette photo

Paula said...

Great image, well-balanced even to their elbows at the same angle on opposite sides.
(I do hope you're right and they didn't just meet at the mall that afternoon.)

Bibi said...

That is beautiful....both photographically and sentimentally.

Brattcat has expressed my perception of this wonderful shot. It's also very sweet.

VP said...

I still have my grandfather's walking stick, it may be useful someday...

Wolynski said...

You never know... You go how nice, still together after all those years... but you just don't know. Great photo.

JM said...

Love this one and the title too! As VP does, I also keep my grandmother's stick.

Rose said...

I like how you did this...

Lois said...

What a sweet picture! We should all be so fortunate.

EG Wow said...

Yes, and they look like they are in a hurry. :)

Daryl said...

Like the use of the movement effect ..

Jarart said...

This is a sweet picture and I like the technique that you used to draw the eye to the subject.

JM said...

It's me again! :-)

Makes me dizzy in a wonderful way. Did he just walk past yesterday's photo?


We have a photo today on GDP that looks like it could be on your "old Florida" blog-- The Midway Diner

Oh I love this photo. I wish I could have done the same (in 25 years from now :-)))
