They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and there’s a lot of truth to that. It’s one thing to provide a detailed explanation of something, it’s another to just show it outright. Take this old couple for instance. They took a picture together in their yard during every season for many, many years. Without a single word being said, the pictures provide a touching story of companiship, love, joy, fear, and loss.
This is the last picture...
Not a word needs to be said. After seeing all these images, and then seeing the old man alone, anyone could understand what he must be feeling, and understand it more deeply than thousands of words could ever express.
NOTE: It’s been recently discovered that these photographs may be from a photographer named Ken Griffiths, originally published in The Sunday Times Magazine in 1973. Details about this story are still emerging.
