So much joy!
One can do so many things in an English park!
Hold a birthday party, play tennis or football, walk a dog, bicycle, hold hands, pic-nick, and so much more!
I was taking photos and videos of the birthday party when this delightful interesting looking old lady come near us. Immediately, I felt attracted to her.
'May I take your portrait?'
Because she did not say 'yes' but let herself be persuaded, we begin to speak, to share. What a surprise to discover: she speaks Hungarian! So we continued in that language, my mother language, that I speak so seldom.
What a joy: we'll meet each other next week again!
I am sure, we have so much to tell each other, common but also different experiences. 'Clever and youth in spirit' someone wrote a comment under her portrait published in flickr. Sometimes, others express better what I feel: another joy.
As I set down, towards the end of the party, looking at the people around, taking some of their pictures, candid or asked, I was enriched by the experience.
And again, yesterday proved to me that photography approach me to people, not distances me from them.
