Fashion Statements – Generation Gap

 on 


Although in this image it is the fashion posters checking out the older lady I’ve called the trend setter, she was genuinely interested in fashion boutiques. She stopped often in front of fashion shops and inspected carefully what was on offer. Perhaps she was shopping for a present as the shops she was checking out were aimed purely at teenagers.

    Good shot Ted! Here is another theory. Maybe she was reminiscing about her youth and wishing she could wear such attire. Perhaps she was really gorgeous in times gone by. I am told that I should grow old gracefully but I am resisting and certainly wish, that like Peter Pan, I could forever be young… It seems then, that your photo has some evocative power, the power to make the viewer ponder.

  • very nice the contrast between old and new
