This is my favorite candid shot I ever took. My grandfather had just met my son (then 4 mos old), and they played together all afternoon.
First shot (but not my fave):
After they finished playing together, they were both, apparently, wiped out.
Snapped this pic of them, napping together.
This is my favorite candid shot I’ve ever taken.
I loved this, because it was 4 generations in one picture. Baby with his great-grandfather.
As life plays itself out, just when I was getting ready to post these, I got a call from my mother.
Pa died this afternoon at about 2pm, after asking to stop having to take the medications that made him feel ill. He said he just wanted peace.
He was 100 yrs old. I like to think maybe when I saw the challenge being “candid” that his spirit was speaking into my heart.
