Obviously this couple won the game! It was an overcast and moody, late afternoon in Coney Island, NY. There was a chill in the air, a quiet desolation. I was alone again having driven in from NJ for some event that was a big let down. So I went out for a walk on the boardwalk. I used to ride that parachute drop as a kid. I approached this couple who got up from the bench. I watched them walk together yet separate. I was touched by their tenderness and the wisdom of their years. They had each other. It filled me with the love I long for. Not sooner did I have the camera to my eye when, the woman put her hand on her companion of many years. SNAP! Got it!! For me that makes the shot! And this shot made my whole voyage worthwhile. If you look beyond, they are in front of a sign saying, GameS - hence the title so fitting for the location.
