I spent ages watching this chap. Seeing him sit there next to the others standing and waiting for the bus made me think about how much I take my health and youth for granted.

A bit bigger here:

the expression on his face is just fantastic. You're right, sights like this do make us realise how much we take for granted. Very nice photo.

Thanks 'hobo, Viv & Javama. He maintained that exact expression throughout the entire period I was watching.

Great portrait, Nige. Are you still hobbling around on crutches yourself?

Thanks Caine, though it's not good to hear you feel that way.

Well, it's not all the time, and I slog on anyway. No use complaining, just have to get out there and do. I discovered today that if Matoska is on a leash and decides to run, he can easily pull me at speed (I had to run like a crazy person to keep up). I think he might find himself hooked up to a sled next winter. :D

Thanks GD :)

It's getting there Javama! The swelling is right down and i'm able to get my weight on it again. Thanks for asking :)
