After the death of one of our friends I went out to their farm and spent some time with his wife. We talked a long time, we cried in between pauses, and we walked for a while. On my way down their long driveway I stopped and leant over the farm gate and thought about our lives. I realised that we do not always have a say in what comes our way in life. And as most of my images are dictated by my heart I asked to be allowed to make an image that showed me this moment. I am happy to share it with you.
