The old man turns the pages of his album: they are all there, from tiny five by five black and white photos, already mellowed by age, to the bright shots he took at the height of his, and their, seductive power. Beaches, venerable ruins, busy streets, lonely mountain peaks: so many stages he took them to, willing, sometime a little anxious…

He smiles at them, all those gorgeous girlfriends, and they appear to smile back. But is there some sarcasm in their eyes?

Old fool, are you still kidding yourself?
