Perfect b&w, Julie. Such dignity and humanity in this composition.

I agree. One can imagine a quiet comfortable conversation,taking in the day around them. Friends or partners the image of a history.

Great moment.

I can imagine the dialogue.

"The grandkids do not write or call as often as I would like."

"They are busy with their family and friends. And kids today do not write. I think we should learn how to use a computer so we can follow them on Facebook."

To get older and grey-haired still brings lots of color in lifes, even showed in b/w ;-)

Someday, that's my partner and I. Love the quiet companionship.

What quiet dignity and what vivid shades of silver in the black and white image.

You've captured a beautiful moment.

They look so peaceful, just enjoying their chat in the sun. I like the way you've taken the photo from behind the men.

Beautiful moment, beautiful image indeed!

The beauty of silver hair ... sitting in the sun and not feeling the compulsion to so anything other than enjoy the sun and company. I look forward to this.

Reading the other comments made me wonder: is this a picture of two women or two men, or one man and one woman? From the back, it is almost impossible to tell: I think the person on the right is a woman, because men's coats don't generally have decorative knobs on the collar and because of the earring. But the other person is more enigmatic. I guess I must admit defeat. This is a wonderful picture of two FRIENDS sharing a bench in the sun and enjoying each others company!

I wonder, did they turn around when they heard your "click". Perhaps the hearing aid was off.

This is a perfect black and white!

That's just a great photograph in every way, on every level. Do you know them?

Julie said...

PJ, thank you and I do not know them.

Very serene, and great range of tones!

Virginia said...

As always, you have a fine photo and a story. I hope I'm not too late to wish you a grand bon voyage to the city j'adore. I look forward to your stories and your photographs that will take me back there.
All the best ,
