Garfield and friend on the marina beach in San Diego, California, USA. We tend to picture the elderly as mostly interesting because of their worn faces. The elderly are interesting because they are us. As I wander into my seventies, I realize that age is more of a construct than reality. Yes it is real and I feel it but my self vision has changed little since my early adulthood.

    THIS IS RELEVANT

    Great capture and caption… congratulations

  • Thank you so much for the feature. This wonderful man would allow me to shoot him but wouldn’t show his face, “because he might run for office.” I think in the end it helped the photo.

    Ah Garfield….looks like he is checking out your pink socks….love it

  • I want you to know that those are not my socks. I love them but the gentleman wearing them is a daily visitor to the beach and interesting to talk to.

    That’s funny…I saw the grey hair and just assumed that JR had taken a shot you guys had set up just for laughs….there goes that assumption stuff again..haha

  • It would have been a cool set up.
