A Walk Through Life

This couple caught my eye when I noticed them walking together around a little man-made lake. The gentlemen, head down, was intent on moving as quickly as he could, but would stop every few steps to make sure his companion was coming along. She strolled at her own pace, aknowledging him and his impatience with quiet glances. I'd wager they've been together a very long time.

This image is truly touching: their will to walk together to enjoy the sunny day is admirable. It does not seem to be easy for him, but he does what he can.
The "strip" processing works very well to tell the story.

Really interesting. Oddly the woman seems to have more of a stride in her step, while the man has a stoop. One would think the woman would be the one in front, and no doubt in some other things, she is.

A wonderful story-telling series, well seen and presented. Walk with me and I'm with you always, to the end of the age...

An eloquent slice of life, Jenene. Very well sequenced -- the key is the center shot, the shot of him waiting.
We never see their faces either. Beautifully abstracted and photographed.
