My dad has had a few different careers during his life. But one thing that has remained with him from the time he was a young teenager is photography. Just as music is to my mom, photography is to my dad. That is how he expresses who he is, how he sees the world, and it has always brought him joy. He has thousands of images in numerous forms – printed, digital, slides, mounted, etc. Recently he has been making an album of all the photos that have won awards in various competitions. Not only are the pictures beautiful, but each one has a story to go with it. To me, the stories are just as compelling as the images that have captured them. It is a beautiful project that gives the viewer a glimpse into the essence of my dad.
I Found God today in my dad’s expression through his photography.
