Yesterday I bumped into a lady I’d not seen for a while.
“Do you remember coming to our house to photograph my grandson?” she asked.
“I do ..” I replied “How is he?”
“Oh, fine ..” she said “He’s just had a baby of his own!” ..
Long silence! What? That baby is a father? How did that happen? Turns out that original photo-shoot was just over twenty years ago! Twenty? Oh, my giddy! Where have all those years gone?..
I suggested I return to the house and arrange another photo-shoot. The lady giggled, embarrassed, and the friend she was with looked me straight in the eye and said “We can do that on the phone now ..”
How times change ..
