trimming it up


In a few years, the eldest folks here in Armenia will be beautiful memories of a country that has seen change run swiftly through. I'm privileged to witness their characters, and enjoy watching how much respect they receive. This is my host mother's father, Papik. Grandfather he is, and his still enjoyment of having his hair cut, was what made me take about 35 pictures of him.

That hat shot is BEAUTIFUL!

LOVE this photo of the hat in the foreground. Ties the whole picture together! And the style of hat itself sitting atop the neatly folded coat gives a distinct gentlemans appearance to the old mans character. You don't see this much anymore in the states.
