Tat Fade: I saw a beautiful woman of African decent, she was about 5’5” between 33 – 39 years old, well dressed with a low cut, a fade. On closer observation I realized that her low fade wasn’t hair but in fact was a tatoo fade. I was immediately fascinated. My first thought was ‘dang that must of hurt,’ my second was ‘why would someone do something so drastic,’ and then after the intial shock upon realization that it wasn’t her hair I thought, ‘hmmmmmm, she looks good, it suit her and she is working the tat fade.’ I have never been so tempted to take a picture. I vacillated between snapping a pic and asking her about her daring do. In the end I just minded my business and took it for what it was, fascinating.


Hands IntertwinedEvery once in a while I am delightfully treated with what  seem like a sweetly wonderful expression of love. An older Latino couple came into the train. They were very animated in there discussion. Periodically they were each touching each other as they spoke with a familiarity that spoke of years together. They took the side beside me and continued there conversation and then intertwined their hands. I very casually removed my camera and surreptitious took a quick photograph. It left a smile on my face. Love is beautiful to witness when it seem so effortless.

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ I love to holds hand with a signifiant other... after all, the spaces between our fingers were created so that another's could fill them in. Love to see that 'love connection' between our older generation, makes me wonder how long they have shared each other's company.

  3. What an awesome morning you had. The photos are great! A love like that is rare in today's world.

  4. Forgive me, may I ask; where're those pics from? I mean, what country?

    I love LOVE. I mean, I'm moved when I see love in action.

    Honestly I don't know what a fade is but sounds interesting to me.
