wheelchair woman

Outside the newsagents sits an elderly lady in a wheelchair complete with crocheted blanket, no doubt a present from a concerned relative. It's one of those old fashioned wheelchairs, nothing like the motorised shopmobility scooters that seem to be everywhere these days; hurtling pensioners at hitherto unheard of speeds from post office to Aldi.
She's on her own, parked outside on the pavement looking forlornly at the door like a dog tied to a railing.

I really like how you weaved an intriguing piece of writing from a simple photo. It really makes me want to dig up her past!

P.S Check out my blog and follow, I followed you as well.
