When Memories Matter
Good Day All,
This is a photo of my father. He is 93 and although he is still going strong, that dreaded day will be upon us sooner than we want.
Whenever I asked to take a portrait of him, he refused. For whatever reason, he didn't want his photo taken. So I tricked him one day. I told him that I wanted to show him what I do so he would understand. I asked him to stand by the window and used a reflector to open up the shadows. I showed him the back of the camera and he was quite impressed, but still refused to have his portrait made. So I used what I had.
Dad will not be with us for much longer and I wanted a portrait of him as he is now. Something I could proudly hang of a wall to remember him. He is and always will be a good, caring man. I wanted to preserve that.
This is why we have portraits made. To remember and charish the people who have touched our lives.
