When conducting one of my Tokyo photowalk tours, I can easily guarantee certain sights and experiences, but exactly who we’ll see and potentially meet is obviously far more difficult to determine. So with that in mind, having the chance to photograph this elderly couple when out on a tour last week was especially pleasing. A pair whose home, garden and natural warmth provide a pretty much perfect example of why older Tokyo is so incredibly appealing.
What lovely smiles they have! They fill one with warmth — and confidence that they’ve had many happy and fulfilling moments in their lives.
I know eh? Seeing them both was an absolute treat. Many happy years, and hopefully many more to come.
This is such a beautiful picture. There is just so much to like. Thank you for sharing and making my day! 🙂
Thanks. And you are more than welcome. They made my day too.
Yep. 100% lovely! 🙂
I agree 100%!
Great shot, love walking around the backstreets seeing people and places like this.
Thanks. Yeah, it’s scenes like this that draw me to these areas, and the backstreets. A world away from the city’s busy thoroughfares.
Wonderful. A lovely scene in so many ways. Thank you for capturing it and sharing it.
Thanks. You are very welcome. The pleasure was all mine to be honest. Seeing them and taking the photo was a really nice moment.
