Friday morning a colourful visitor came to dine on my front lawn. He is a Northern Yellow Shafted Flicker. I had to shoot this through my dirty screened in front window, so please excuse the fuzzyness. I really need to do some window cleaning. I switched to video mode just in time to catch him fly away. Needless to say he made my day.
When my mother passed, my father came to live with my husband and I. I continued working until it became apparent that he needed full time care. I left my job to care for him full time. When life for us stabilized, I took the opportunity to pursue an arts degree.
In my second year at the University of Windsor I began my studies in photography. Photography was my passion, and my father’s as well. On one assignment I photographed a day in my father’s life. These photos turned into a book, “Don’t Grow Old, the advice of John C. Clarke.” The final photo I took that day, was of my father’s hands as he sat on the side of his bed, and said goodnight.
Here is a link to the online version of the book, Don’t Grow Old.
Sunday Stills challenge for the week, hands.
