The young and the old one

Venue: Lozenets beach, Bulgaria

Lens specs: Nikkor 50 mm – aperture f/11, shutter speed 1/500s, ISO 100

Music: Jay-Z feat. Mr. Hudson – Forever young (

Very recently I was on a short holiday at the Bulgarian seaside and while enjoying the beach in Lozenets I spotted this little kid helped by his grandfather climbing some small cliffs nearby. Taking a short break from the climb, the two of them then stared together at the sun. And I just couldn’t resist taking a shot, immediately realizing the strong symbolism behind this very ordinary event. So I thought that instead of mixing this one with more pictures from the recent trip, I’ll keep it alone to make it stand out.

    Thank you, Kiril………….I hope you do not mind that I have incorporated this photograph in my post for October birthdays. I particularly like the way in which you did not remove the blue light in front of the two figures!

    You could not have known this but recently I have grown distressed at the state of children in one country and another. No other species mishandles children as our species does. This photo is a tonic for that blue mood of mine! Thanks….. Sarah

  2. It’s beautiful. Often times, we forget the older generation. They were once young and us, we will be like them one day. It so lovely to see these two generations together. Thank you for sharing!

  3. great picture – takes me down memory lane over 5 decades ago, I remember walks with my grandfather past the salt pans of Mumbai’s marshland (a distant memory) – that is now gradually getting converted into a concrete jungle
