The old man on the ferry

On my way to Miyajima I spotted this old man on the ferry sitting in his wheelchair. I became immediately aware of this special situation. I sensed some kind of melancholy in his gaze. Was he a victim of the disaster which had happend in Hiroshima more than 70 years ago I asked myself.
