Elderly Animals: Photographs by Isa Leshko from Mark & Angela Walley on Vimeo.

It's always interesting to me how provocative is the subject of elderly animals. I've met animal lovers vehemently opposed to what they feel is the cruelty of keeping old friends alive. Others believe continuing their care is the apex of human compassion.

I find Mark and Angela Walley's short film on Isa Leshko's photos a beautiful meditation on aging and love... And you?

You can see more of Isa's images at her website.
