The happiest of lives and love stories all end tragically as the Hollywood Ending always ends decades before the actual end. Afterwards someone else comes along and decides what of your life is worth saving and what souvenirs will fabricate your history.

His and Hers
My grandfather never really took off his eye-glasses, my grandmother up until the end would take her's off for the most casual snapshot. In his professional portraits his glasses made him look like the serious business man he was but for her the connotations associated with eyeglasses did not fit the image she was projecting so as soon as a camera appeared she automatically took off her eye-glasses, tilted her head, turned 3/4 and bent one knee ever so slightly. There. Perfect.
