    Imagine the things these eyes have seen ... every wrinkle tells a story! Perhaps it is a blessing when at last we must embrace the face that orbits our eyes. When we have no options to change our life's cover - finally, may it be that we are wise enough to care more for the paragraphs written within our eyes. Truth is, each day we may chose a new poem; a prose fresh for the novel of our eyes. Youth cannot carry the interesting tales that this man's face offers the avid reader of face-books.

    Any time you think old age and wrinkles are catching up with you, think of how content this old guy looks.

    Photographer : Yuri Bonder - (''The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depts. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.'' Elizabeth Kubler-Ross)

    Imagine the things those eyes have seen...portrait by photographer Yuri Bonder ....or, like the song by Brandi Carlisle, The Story: All of these lines across my face Tell you the story of who I am So many stories of where I've been And how I got to where I am But these stories don't mean anything When you've got no one to tell them to It's true...I was made for you...) #portrait #photography
