An Elderly Couple Took The Same Photo Every Season. But Nothing Could Prepare Me For The Last One.

The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” for a reason. Explaining how we feel is one way of getting a message across. Another is simply showing each other how we feel. During each season, this couple took a photo together in front of their house. In the resulting series of images below, without saying anything at all, a love story is being told. It’s full of hope, joy, fear and loss, but it’s told in the most unique way. You’ll see what we mean – and then you’ll be moved by it.

Nothing has to be said for us to know what that man is probably feeling in the last photograph. A thousand words indeed.

Update: Viral Novelty was informed these photos, originally sent to us through e-mail, may be from a photographer named Ken Griffiths, originally published in The Sunday Times Magazine in 1973. We are still trying to verify this as well as other details about the story.
