This is one of my favourite shots from today. Thought B&W was fitting.
I met this couple walking towards the lighthouse as I was walking back. Yes, we all ignored the warning signs.
I like to talk to everyone, so naturally I spoke to them. Nothing special. The weather. Biting cold. Wind. Swans. How if you look at the ice bobbing in the water too long it’ll make you dizzy.
The man had a little bouquet of flowers and his wife a small plastic container.
They’d recently had to say goodbye to their beloved Golden Retriever and, since she loved coming to the lake with them, they decided a fitting tribute would be to throw some of her ashes in the lake, along with the flowers.
The man showed me some pictures from his phone and talked a bit about her. We hugged and wished Happy New Year to each other and went our separate ways.
By the way, tears will indeed freeze on your face if you don’t wipe them away. #sayinggoodbyetoafriend#tearsdofreeze#whitby#docksidewhitby#Godbless#weloveourpets#ourfunnynature#wishidgottentheirnames#heartbreaking
