Not easy....

It's not easy being old, and I am always surprised at the number of older citizens here who get around as well as they do. More power to them.

You're absolutely right and I can testify to how difficult it is - and getting harder!

Very fine slice-of-life shot!

There but for fortune (and yoga, maybe) . . . hope I have this kind of determination in years to come! Wonderful (and touching) portrait, Bibi.

en effet, c'est pour cela que l'état avait mis des aides aux personnes âgées, aides qui malheureusement se réduisent d'années en années. un sujet très important vu le vieillissement de la population

old folks are the toughest birds on earth. Young turks think they are tough, but an old codger can kick their butt easy

What a poignant photo, Bibi - the contrast between the stooped woman and the mannequins in the window behind...

Some elderly sure are smart to carry along those nifty pull carts. I love those things and have used them myself to cart my art from the car to the indoors. I haven't worked up the nerve to actually take it the 10 blocks to the grocery store yet though. I think with age it gets easier to not give a damn what onlookers think! And I'm looking forward to that! Here's to aging well!!
