Today would have been my father’s eighty-eighth birthday, had we not lost him in 2001 to the horrific disease that is Alzheimer’s. In my attempts to organize the many boxes of family photos, I’ve discovered some of his old black and white snaps. Unfortunately, I don’t have any information about the pictures, other than what they show. Double unfortunately, I know he had tons of pictures like these, but I get the sneaking suspicion they were lost in a basement flood back in 2004. However, I’m happy I can share a least a few of his beautiful shots.
Before I do, once again, I want to take a moment and direct you to some of my favorite professional, semi-professional, and talented amateur photographers. I’m posting these every Monday in May, in honor of National Photography Month.
Here they are, in no particular order –
