Parting ShotWritten by Lad Strayer | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Recently, I saw this couple walking at the Toledo Botanical Gardens. My first thought was to point my camera at them and shoot, which is a natural reflex for me. My second thought was that this image really represents what our golden years should be like. My next thought was to get their names. Then I stopped and thought, “No, their identities are not important. This is an image that sends a message about the beauty of getting older, and this could be anyone, anywhere.”
