13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
We came across this gentleman who sat at a table in a small cafe in the Swiss Alps in a town called Wengen. We were amazed at how fit he was and couldn't help but notice that he was alone. We asked the waitress if she knew him. She replied yes, and he agreed to let us take his picture. We offered him tea or coffee and he graciously said no and that he was ok just sitting there. What we later found out is that he just buried his wife a few days before and he just wanted a bit of company.
