This post, the last one before my trip to Afghanistan, is about being old and alone, about loneliness.
You figure out a story behind this shot.

Very moving image.
one of your best.
I think that being alone at old age heightens one’s vulnerability towards death. Traditionally in Asia, children are expected to take care of their parents at old age. But, nowadays, there are increased instances (esp. in more developed Asian countries) where children are not as close to their parents in their old age.
Beautiful and poignant visual reminder of what we may all one day face.
