#2, tied with another.
Another 21.gif AllenP entry. Really like this one as well. The juxtaposition of young and old works nicely. The lyric chosen wasn't overly cliched like the majority of the entries.

My top pick - wonderful in every way. This has the appearance of a candid but I cannot imagine a better "set-up" - the physical and apparent relational closeness of the two girls, the physical distance and apparent disconnect between them and the old man, his downcast gaze and the pose that could be just relaxed but seems somehow sad - everything works to suggest a story that is perfectly titled. Lovely tones, too. Voted earlier.
