I would go out with my camera looking for them,
trying to establish a conversation,
hoping to end up with a portrait that captured what struck me.
Whenever I see an elderly person
my heart just melts and my face smiles.
I stare at her or him wondering,
who is this, how does she feel, where is he going.
It does not happen with everyone,
but with those who are still, to my eye, enjoying life.
And I guess that is where my passion towards the elderly comes from,
the inner desire to feel that way when I grew old.
