They Have a System


They have a system, these two men, as they find their way around town to do errands on any given day. One seems to shift forward to blaze the path across the day's obstacles, to find the safe path. The other seems to lean back in counter balance, blind and holding his head high, poised to meet the day, in complete faith that his comrade will not lead him astray.

This is a lovely photo in itself, and a very touching post.

Elaine, a wonderful image. The long shadows work well to convey the shadowland inhabited by this man, yet they flow into the light in a similar way to which his guide provides light and guidance for the companion. Touching post indeed ... and one that can only be done by the insightful and sighted person.

I like the way that you've framed this. Too local characters no doubt...

I like this photo, of the men and of the Willits street. So atmospheric

Thank you all. I only ever see them just like this, so I don't know if they are related, or what their personalities are. They just are as they are, and they inspire me on the face of things.

Sara, I wish I knew Farsi! I'm terrible with new languages, but I think our pictures speak to everyone. Thank you for sharing that dream. 8^)
