When you see white hair, do you see what's underneath it? I started asking myself if I really see older people, or perhaps look past them, not take in the details? It struck me that in his right hand this man carries a guitar, indicating one of his abilities, talents and interests in life, and in his left hand he grasps a cane, indicating a possible loss of ability. Is he able? Disabled? What did you first notice about him? This shot was taken in the heart of old Ballard. (Sorry for this very delayed post. . .modem problems for days and posting from the library when I can.)
