Is there a story behind this photo?
It has such an air of possibilities, lovely capture.

Hello MaggieD. It is my father in law who will be 90 in a fortnights time. Earlier this week as a birthday surprise my husband BS and BS's brother took him back to France to where he ended up after the D Day landings in 1944. They took him to all the places he remembered and he had the most incredible time.

In one village he met up with an elderly woman who remembered watching the bombing of Caen with him in a field where his company had built a temporary airfield. That was when she was a 12 year old girl. A magic moment for all of them.

BS took this photo on my camera, it is completely unedited. I think it's a fantastic shot, too good not to share :)

Thanks billion. It was wonderfully successful and has shown all of us that you can still have huge high spots in your life even 2 weeks short of 90!
