Life document #1080054

After mentioning a gazillion times, you know we lead a simple life. On Sundays the streets are almost deserted as people prefer to stay indoors. There are a few who spent time to window shop *ahem*... this couple was across the street from where we were, window shopping*, of course. I saw them and the following conversation took place ..

me : you think we will be like them when we're their age?
partner : sure, women no matter at what age like to window shop!
me : lol ! but -_- I meant as seemingly loving as they are ....

What do you think? is he right about women?

*photo taken right after the conversation


=======================

Update
Yesterday's peace sign is actually a peace pole , pointed out by Ruth of East Lansing. Apparently there're about 200,000 signs placed around the world. May be your town/city have one?

your partner is a real man as I see:) isnt he Hungarian?:)

zannnie said...

I asked Zsolt the other day cos there were quite few old couples (as in going out together like this) and he said the statistics is strangely so for Hungary, Hungarian men have a relatively short life expectancy (66.5 years)and women is about ten years more


Kris, this is certainly a very great shot;)

Long lasting love and walking through life together is a great picture.
Window shopping isn't bad either...

Wonderful thoughtful photograph.

They do deserve our envy don't they?
When I see an old couple walking together down the street it always reminds me of that beautiful Beatles song which of course you know...

... when I'm 64 ...

Cheers

Oh, what a moving photo. I tried post a comment to your Prayer POle photo but not sure it came through: we have many of them around here, including next door to me, as the world headquarters of the World Peace Prayer Society is right down the road from us, about 10 miles away, in Wassaic NY. I've been there and worked with them on many occasion!

I like this photo. Nice use of B/W and color to create the mood. There is a lot of emotion in this photo.

Kris said...

Jenny,
the comment was posted, Jenny :) see my reply there.
after starting DP, i've learnt so many interesting things .

lachezar,
erm..i didnt know!! perhaps the tune not the name :D

Zannie,
on the streets of szentes you'll see the same. That's why this couple made such an imression on me.


Zsolt,

Susan,

Lisi,
may we have the same blessings ;)

Tanty,
sure they didnt jump on a plane for a holiday here?

Thank you all for stopping by!

Carlos said...

Yeah sure always buying nonstop, 24 hrs a day. No, just kidding. I find it a very funny dialogue though. Well at least they are still together in spite of all the window shopping years.-)

denton said...

Yes, you will be just like this couple when you and hubby are their age. And yes, women like to window shop.

Kris said...

Thanks, Denton :)
Like Susan said, Men just dont get it !

Carlos,
if you cant fight them, join them !!
