Friends 4 Life

Kyoto, Japan… 17:09… An intersection near Gion…

I was waiting for the traffic light to open when I noticed this elderly lady pushing an elderly gentleman in a wheelchair.

The traffic light was closed for pedestrians, but I could sense that she wasn’t so keen on waiting for the green light.

She advanced a bit towards the street, but luckily the green lights soon came up.

She then sprints towards the opposite corner in diagonal. Actually not allowed, but she didn’t care anyway.

Besides the dangerous maneuver, what brought my attention to them were their friendship.

I don’t know if they are wife and husband… But I like to think that besides the title, they are “Friends 4 Life”

2 old souls together, one helping another.
