This senior man is smiling because he's out to have dinner at a restaurant for a change..
The image was made outside in the shade, just before he went in to eat..

Hi Murry, He actually had his hair moussed down but a wind caught it just as I snapped the shutter. Figures huh LOL??

This poor guy is virtually blind and going out is a really BIG DEAL to him. Now you should have seen him after the glass of brandy. He was real slap happy then!! #832178
