photoblog image Getting older

Getting older

I tried hard to find a shot for today to celebrate my birthday but could not come up with one. This one I thought meant more than just a picture of an old lady walking down the street. Long story short, I like the focused foreground and the blurry or diminishing background. I relate to this a bit different, today I'm a year older and thank God I am alive to see today(foreground in the shot). As I live my life and even grow much older, I hope and pray that what the future holds is peace, joy and good health. I hope you have a nice weekend.

Happy Birthday!
Dotun, Happy Birthday! I almost thought you were Ginnie, and it must have been that I was just visiting her blog. wink In any case, the words you write are very appropriate, and I wish you all the best - peace, joy and health in the coming years.
Happy Birthday Dotun. God bless you with good health, joy and peace all your life. Lovely shot to celebrate the day smile
Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday, dear Dotun! You and I are both Gemini, I see. Lots of people share this day, among them my 2-year-older sister, my ex-husband, and my dear friend in Hannover, Germany. And now you, too!

That "old lady" could be me, with strawberry-blonde hair. So I walk with you down this Journey's Lane and wish you all that your heart holds dear.

Have a great day and holiday weekend.
Happy birthday Dotun... !! All the best for you and your family.

Nice reflections there!
We ought to reflect and ponder over our lives because each time we grow older by a year, it's less time here on earth

i'm a bit late but hope you had a great birthday Dotun
Belated birthday wishes Dotun.
I think the DOF also indicates that whatever you have already covered are crystal clear whereas future is somewhat blurry and unclear.
Really liked this shot
