Simple and effective, excellent candid style portrait work, Barri!
Back in popular where it belongs!
Great gallery, Barri! V
This is one of my all time favorite galleries on Pbase...I had to come back again and leave you another note. You have captured a little slice of life so beautifully. Your parents have fantastic faces, I feel like I've been sitting in the kitchen with them, you can almost hear the conversation. Hope they are well.
Great, very warm and touchin gallery!
This proves you need not go far for good and interesting photography. The best photograohy seems to be of those things and people that really matter to us. Big vote!
At our best and most fortunate we make pictures because of what stands before our camera, to honor what is greater and more interesting than we are. We never accomplish this perfectly, though in return we are given something perfect--a sense of inclusion. Our subject thus redefines us, and is part of the biography by which we want to be known. - Robert Adams
I love revisiting this gallery and feel as if I'm right there, in the kitchen, with my hands around a warm mug of coffee listening to the stories and conversations between those two beautiful people. Thanks again for this wonderful photo essay, Barri.
Wonderful pictures. All the best to your Mom and Dad!
Very nice gallery.
It's really lovely to see these. It's so sweet for devotion to remain for so long. A unique gallery indeed.
Really good pics...You have captured the narrative without any words.
Berri: nice gallery. No, wonderful gallery. You confirm my feeling conviction of capturing real life relationships. This is wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
inspirational... to be married for 60 years!!
Stunningly, lovingly candid. Vote from me
Its lovely...the way your father gets up and does the chores or re-fills and he lets her just sit and relax. I aspire to have a marriage like this and am working very hard to make it possible.
A truly warm and refreshing gallery featuring a truly inspiring couple.
Lovely and blessing moments.. God bless them ;)
Brings back memories - was 19 in 1965 went to New Zealand to study and there was this really elderly couple I saw in a lounge - so loving and I had to go over and ask this question (which they don't mind)do they love each other more after 40 yrs. Their answer?
Yes and of course I can see that. Now I'm old and my answer? Yes. Hope the wife don't see this, she'll melt.
very nice, did you try Black and white?
It's so refreshing to see a gallery featuring "older people" coming up in the random Popular Galleries! Our society is so hung up on youth and T&A (as evidenced by some of the other galleries here that are popular for one reason only). This gallery is great!
Oh yes, my favorite gallery is back.
barri, i keep coming back to this gallery! not sure exactly why, but these pictures speak volumes to me. so representative of interactions we have all seen or been a part of, with our spouse. these pictures are awsome, as are a couple that has been together 60 years! ;)
All has been said before...I just love this gallery. I hope to have somebody to have spirited conversations with, when I reach that age.
i love this whole gallery barri, great work of storytelling with pictures!
very nice photos and subjects. what type of camera was used?
Such a wonderful glimpse in time. Captured perfectly.
Very nice Gallery they look a very nice couple I think they call it togetherness keep shooting it will always be something to treasure
Barri, just ran across this gallery. It is such a wonderful "slice of life". Thanks for sharing.--Rene
I have looked and looked and looked at this gallery hundreds of times and love coming back to it, as if those faces are truly familiar to me. What a well-shot sequence of images, Barri. They're superb. ~Jeanne
They are such touching, tender moments! And yes, we can almost hear their conversation!
Nice gallery. Couldn't help but smile, imagining the conversation. I especially like the half-smirk in 6761 and 6770.
Great pictures Barri, so simple moments of life but so touching. Regards. Marc
So lovely pictures Barri. Congratulations. but I still think your mustache does not fit here ;-)
