  1. Both photos are wonderful. You so captured the couple on the bench! Black & white. Life can be so simple at times when you grow old with the love of your life. Comfortable. At times, no words needed. Thank you for sharing these! I was your neighbor at Katherine's Corner this morning :)

    1. Thank you jviola... I didn't know the couple on the bench, but they looked perfectly content in their silence and togetherness. Like you mentioned, life can be so simple at times :)

  8. I love that the word history is grounded in story - and love how you illustrated the point here. Wonderful monochromes and couple!

    1. Ohh if only I could tell you the backstory of this post Lulu! I went back + forth on what to write until I ended up deleting most of it (because there's so much lost in translation and the differences in English + French are so nuanced - and fascinating, etc). I ended up realizing that keeping it simple was best - for now. I do so agree with you that the French word histoire is so beautiful because in one word there are two distinct meanings, but you can almost fit either one in certain (specific) contexts... and in this case, the photos said it best :)
