It's a Gray Area
I'm one of those people who likes gray hair. I'm not talking in an "oh, baby, bring your gray head over here and ravage me" kind of way (although that's been known to be the case - I'm not mentioning any famous actors' or singers' names - if you know me, I don't have to - ah, I digress) - but in a general, asthetically pleasing sort of way.

Postcrossing postcard NL-386709 from Netherlands
Postcard NL-386709 travelled 5,956 km (3,701 miles) in 13 days (from Netherlands to U.S.A.): A card with 3 funny old ladies in swimming suits, haha!
This woman had the timeless look that one sees in the painting of old, from when the first people showed up on these shores - a beauty that time can no change, passed on from one generation to the next. (This was taken at the Nansemond Indian Tribe's 20th Annual Pow Wow .)
I loved everything about this lady. From the way she dressed, to the way she posed, to the fact that she was halfway inside a grocery store when she agreed to walk back out into the rain.
