Interesting theme… I wanted to find a quote that would lead me to something a bit less obvious than fragility of beauty. I found this one:
“The older you get, the more fragile you understand life to be. I think that’s good motivation for getting out of bed joyfully each day.”
This image was taken in Madrid some years ago, and this man heard my shutter go as I was trying to take the photo of him and his dog going past, I probably said “missed it” or something to my friend, and he wheeled around and gave me a beaming smile, so I could take the shot!!
Hop over to Ese’s blog to see more images on this theme.
