Meeting John & his beautiful wife was like accidentally walking into the middle of a love story.
John is 81 & like me we share a love of photography.
We also share a dislike for having our photo taken.
John is a Portrait Volunteer for the 82 Life Project.
He telephoned me one afternoon after learning of the project.
He asked me what my motivation was & I spoke honestly about what had inspired
me to start this adventure
John is a listener, not to reply – just to listen.
When we meet I learnt that
for over a hundred years his family have had a photography business.
His love of photography very present, he walks & photographs while his beautiful
wife spends time teaching mahjong at the library.
If you look through the window into the home of love you would see that it is warm, nurturing & gentle.
Wholesome & giving, kind & open, honest & unguarded.
You would only be looking though.
John and his wife opened the door on their love just by allowing me
to sit with them & talk.
She will forever be his light
He will forever be her love.
