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.

memory.

Why do people think that when pushing all the time the button the lights will change faster?

a suit.

Man in the stylish suit on the bus. With his shirt perfectly ironed, cufflinks and shiny shoes, playing car racing game. Longing for childhood in a grown up suited world.

Is checking yourself out in a funeral home shop window inappropriate?

cherries.

Should vegetarians check cherries before eating them? In case there is a bug living inside..
