Great capture with the young and old - nicely done!

David Bearden replied:

Larry & Elaine, thanks very much...

More than a single image, a single photograph....this image is a reflection on life...how quickly time moves on..all captured in a single split second image. Cartier-Bresson would approve I am sure.

David Bearden replied:

Glenn, humbling praise indeed...thank you very much...

This is a very beautiful photograph. I can't come up with words.

David Bearden replied:

Patricia, thank you very much..appreciate your kind words...

To quote John Prine is wonderful, your photo priceless! V13

David Bearden replied:

Jim, thanks very much...appreciated...

DAVID, THIS PICTURE BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES. MY MOM HAD ALTZHEIMERS. I HAD HER IN AN EXCELLENT NURSING HOME, FOR 10 YEARS. I WORKED 60 HRS. A WEEK. I WOULD VISIT HER EVERY OTHER WEEKEND. I WOULD TAKE HER TO BASKIN AND ROBBINS, FOR ICE CREAM SUNDAES. SHE LOVED HER DAY OUT WITH ME. I COULDN'T KEEP HER AT HOME WITH ME, AS WHEN I WASN'T AT WORK, I WAS CAREGIVER TO MY HUSBAND, WHO HAD HEART DISEASE, PARKINSONS, DIABETES, AND CANCER. MY MOM AND OUR SON, AND MY DAD, ALL WENT TO BE WITH JESUS OVER A 2 YR PERIOD. THEN 4 YEARS AGO, 2 DAYS BEFORE THANKSGIVING MY HUSBAND GEORGE WENT TO HEAVEN. SEVEN WEEKS LATER I RETIRED AT THE AGE OF 66. NOW 70 YEARS OF AGE, I TOTALLY RELATE TO YOUR PICTURE. I THINK BACK TO ALL THE TIMES I HAVE SAID HELLO TO ELDERLY PPL, AND NOW I AM ONE OF THEM. THANKYOU FOR SHARING THIS VERY SPECIAL PICTURE WITH US.F/V/TW

Judyann, thanks for your thoughtful comments...have a wonderful holiday season...

It's sad how life works...we are born with loads of people around to take care of our every need but when your children are grown or you happen to move to a strange place and have grey or white hair, people tend to dismiss you. Life should be the same in the beginning as the end with people caring for you and helping to make your life more interesting. Your picture makes a statement of today's life in America. v/f/t

David Bearden replied:

Marcia, thanks for your wonderful thoughts and insights...I guess the only way to change that is one person at a time...as John Prine's lyrics say, "Please, don't pass 'em by and stare, say hello in there, hello..."

Tears in my eyes and my heart for this elderly lady. I heard a minister say: "Your smile may be the only smile someone sees today." It stuck with me. So will this special photograph. Beautiful capture, title and description, David. V/F

David Bearden replied:

Diannah, thanks very much...

Great capture and work! vf

David Bearden replied:

John, thanks very much...appreciated...

Yes, it is an excellent contrast in stages of life. I feel the aloneness of the person on the bench. Very well seen and shot, David! v kk :)

David Bearden replied:

Kathleen, appreciate your kind words and thoughtful comments...thanks...

Very moving David...you have captured the primary stages of life; young single, family couple, childhood, and old age. All in one shot.

David Bearden replied:

Richard, thanks very much...can't plan that event...serendipity happens...

You have captured such a tender moment here, David. Good work! v/f

David Bearden replied:

Patrice, thank you very much...appreciated...

others right there and still alone....vf

David Bearden replied:

Barbara, yes, sometimes we pass by and miss the obvious...I have included a John Prine song in my description...
