92 year old man by snoopybooboo

92 year old man

This is my friend Tom who lives at the bottom of Streatham Common. He is 92 years old and has all his marbles about him and regularly walks up to the top of the common and back down again and no walking stick needed.
Wonderful portrait and story to go with it :)

He is stunningly handsome and youthful looking for a 92-year-old man! Great portrait shot! Thanks for sharing. I am particularly interested as I work with elders as a Registered Drama Therapist/Creative Engagement consultant.
