a great grandmother & emma - 26th feb 2012
On the first vaguely warm day this year, I took my new mini diana camera for a walk in the park. Whilst in my favourite corner of the park I came across an elderly lady walking her dog. She intrigued me; she was really struggling to walk, was dragging one leg on the ground and was quite hunched over however she powered on to give her dog a nice walk! So I took the following series of photos (if you look closely at the above photo; you can see her before I even spotted her!):
First glance through the fence:
She settled down on a bench for a rest:
I joined the lady on the bench. Her dog was very friendly and lovely and jumped up on my leg. The lady then told me her dog was called Emma and is six years old. Her son apparently often takes Emma on long walks which she loves and is 'everybody's friend'. The lady then told me that her great grandchildren love Emma and that Emma loves them too. I tried to talk to the Great Grandmother but her hearing was poor and she couldn't really understand me and I couldn't make myself understood. So I said my goodbyes....
Off the Great Grandmother goes with Emma...slowly....
and another break before home time.
I hope they went home and had a nice cup of tea :-)
