  4. How essential, that bodies still touch, that there is warmth and trust!

  5. A feel-good moment, well-captured.

  6. Lovely. I miss the touch of handshakes, the pleasure in the greeting – folk rarely do this these days…
    Anna :o]

  7. Such a beautiful moment… so poignantly captured.💞

  8. That handshake means so much more than a nod in passing doesn’t it?

  9. I like the sense of formality here among familiar old pals. Almost like they’re being cheeky.
