A photo shoot featuring a 45-year-old male and a 62-year-old woman may not seem like it would generate many compelling images to view at first, but virtually any human being who has seen the pictures of Sergei and Valentine admits that the photo shoot in question was an overwhelming success. In fact, anyone who has seen “Up” animation will likely be reminded of the famous love story of Carl and Ellie Fredricksen.
Russian photographer Irina Nedyalkova led the improvised performance, and the images went viral almost immediately after being uploaded to the internet. Perhaps even more beautiful than the photos themselves was the true story of their love that the couple shared with everyone who was on the set; very few human beings within earshot walked away without wiping tears from their eyes.
Wayne Dyer once said that, “Your timeless self does not age and has no fear of the future. Contemplate your physical self and all its possessions, and practice laughing peacefully at it all.” Indeed, hearing this story and these words really makes you wonder why the stereotype that love is designed for young people exists. Furthermore, Eckhart Tolle’s words support this timeless philosophy and ideology as well: “In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love.”
Please view the images below and observe “the realization of oneness” for yourself!
