The last month I’ve had a chance to photograph fathers and sons together. Quite by accident I assure you. The pictures just happened that way.
Having my own son has been a joy. He has taught me so much about how to live life carefree. Not that all children don’t. Children live in the moment.
My dad, who passed away at 102 years of age, was a rock solid man. I was by his bedside as he took the last breath of millions. I realized at that moment, our parents never stop teaching us children how to live. They guide us through the pitfalls of life, teach us how to survive on our own. In finality, they teach us grace and dignity as we age and die. Not that it’s as simple as that.
I know fathers day is a few weeks in the future. This is not meant to be a fathers day salute or a slight to moms and their sons. I show these to remind us that life goes on. Every day.
