Waiting, 2007

For several months in 2007, I spent my Mondays up at my grandparents' house in Farmington, hanging out with my grandfather while my grandma went to dialysis. I'd always arrive to find them somewhere in a morning routine as my grandfather would help my grandmother get dressed in a pink fleece, then wait patiently by the door with her sitting at the bottom of the stairs until the UTA FlexTrans bus arrived. It seemed so symbolic of their mutually-supportive relationship, and initially I was worried that taking a picture of the moment might be an invasion of their privacy. But one morning I stood at the top of the stairs with my little Canon point-and-shoot and took a photo anyway. They both passed in 2008, and I've never been more grateful to have taken a picture.
