so much meaning in one image!

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Well composed. I like the four tall buildings in the distance as an echo of the figures up front.

Photo Cache said...

this is funny and wonderful at the same time. i wonder why the other couple chose not to sit together instead sit apart and appear like the other couple is in their midst. i wonder if these two couples know each other and if they came here altogether. great capture.

A very nice shot! I like the composition and that it is in b/w.

Randy said...

Nice B&W shot! I was wondering the same as Photo Cache, why did they sit apart.

Pam said...

Such a sweet moment captured! Could the younger ones be their kids?

Sujatha said...

@ joshi daniel, gunn, leah mc cormick: thanks
@ pasadena adjacent: i didn't quite notice that there were 4 of them till you pointed it out
@ photocache, randy, pam, sujatha: i believe that the four of them are family too. the younger couple is probably their son and daughter-in-law. i think there is a notion of protection in how they're sitting, that they are trying to create.
