    Gung Hay Fat Choy! I keep looking right to see the parade!
    Ah, the generations – wonderful capture!
    Who knows when we are ‘old?’ In California 40 is considered ancient! yet we are living until 100.
    Never too old to be young.

  • Thanks a lot :)) ha…..and the still don’t realize that the “oldies” here are making the most money of all age categories…the commercial guys are still in deep sleep…here :))

    I’m pretty sure old is always about 20 years ahead of me. ;) Your photograph of the precious love between grandpa and grandchild tells an endless story—she will never forget him or his love for her, and hopefully will pass it on.

  • Yes…quite right Frannie ! Aren’t we the lucky ones than :))) thanks again for finding this image…

    You captured such a wonderful trio, Michel. Love the man’s forehead wrinkles and expression, the little girl’s hands holding on for support, and perhaps a mother — or at least a different generation — in the shallow dof on the right. So many possible stories in this photo. Beautifully done!

  • Thanks Jan ! In my pictures hands play an important role….not consciously…but I always seem to pick the ones where they have some emotional feeling….to me at least…it’s so nice to see you here, after such a long while :) thanks from afar….x
