20 amazing photos capturing the wisdom of the aged

Such great things as wisdom, experience and patience come with age, without mentioning its unique and inimitable beauty... are you still afraid of getting old?


Most people are. Aging is a natural and inevitable process, which scares young people a lot. People have been in pursuit of eternal youth for centuries, often going too far and overreacting. We are sure everything depends on our personal preferences, and one can be happy and live life to the full at any age. The trick is to learn to find positive aspects at any point in time, no matter how old you are.

The authors of these beautiful photos tried to catch the singular spirit of the old. The pictures got our attention and inspired us a lot. Every person depicted has a story of life behind and is ready to share it with us.

We believe you will also have plenty to think about after looking at these photographs.

All the pictures were amazing, old is how you feel or do not feel, not the number of wrinkles on one's face ot the color and thinness of one's hair, nor is it really a date on a calendar which makes us old . Yes I am no longer young out side but insidfull of life and zest!

I am 83 and I'm there. Living a life with my little dog at my side. Thankful for each day that I can get up and walk and take care of myself and my dog.

Too soon old, too late smart. Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.
