Couple sitting in the sun at St Ives, Cornwall; 10 Oct 2013.
Why do I call them husband and wife? Well, because they’re of that age >>> but maybe they’re “Living In Fun”! I very much hope so! And as for “Living In Sin”, what a preposterous notion that is, now increasing defunct, thank goodness – but I wonder who it was thought that one up … ???? …. down FATman! … down boy!! … HEEL!!! …
What do I like about this picture? Well, obviously, the petite lady’s feet not reaching the ground – and not being tall myself, are there seats where my feet also fail to reach the ground??? Of course there are!
And they were both eating bananas, but is that relevant???
No, it isn’t, because what draws me to this, apart from her dangling feet, are his casually crossed feet, and those oh so practical …. vibram-soled … polished …brown ….. shoes …. >>> people tell me that I don’t look or act my age. Of course I know that they’re only after my money but, by the same token, if ever I am seen in polished brown shoes … well … just start looking at other blogs …. because I will be so far over the hill by that time … that when I look back behind me ….. everything will be …… awfully flat ……..
Despite my attempts at humour, there’s something very touching and heartwarming about this scene. We are looking at one of the very, very good things of life, one of the things in life that are worthwhile and that really matter, and I apologise for making light of it … but I’m still going to leave my words as they originally sprang to what I, dear readers, laughingly call my mind ….
