the old man and his dog.

Very touching view: an old trembling man in an old-fashioned jacket, straw hat with holes and shoes that fell apart one century ago. With all years marked on his face. Walking a dog. Same old, with grey nose and tangled fur but truly happy. Both. They have each other. This is more than some of us have.

contrast.

On the tube. A middle aged woman, rather unemployed and poor. With all years marked with wrinkles on her face and hands. Opposite her sitting a very smart high class woman in a similar age. Dressed up like if she was going to the opera. Carrying a magazine with wines and making marks to remember which one to try. The way the first one looks at the other you can compare to the way a
canary sitting in a cage looks at the canary flying freely outside. The
feeling of something so painfully unreachable that turns your guts upside down.
