The first one is very nice, and very tasteful. I especially like the black and white for that picture since it seems to set the mood. If it wasn't such a morbid subject it's probably something I could see putting in a nice frame and hanging on the wall.

Thank you, LCohen for your tribute to your grandpa.

President John F. Kennedy said that a nation's greatness
can be measured by how those who have passed on
are remembered.

Thank you digcamfan and dani.

As requested I will write some lines that I hope will do him the justice I am capable of.

My grandfather (on my mother's side) was a father not only to his own children but also to his children's children. He was respected and beloved. His well known ability to give speeches and be witty at parties made him one of the most popular individual to invite.
He was also a fantastic photographer, people hired him to photograph their children, funerals and much more, not to mention the numerous competitions he won with his Zeiss camera. I will try to publish some of his work here.

But as always, it is impossible to win over time, although he took on some couragous battles. At the age of 73 he crushed his heel when he fell from the ladder, but he came back. He got a stroke some years later and lost his ability to speak, but he came back and so did his speech. He fell and broke his thighbone, but he came back and got up on his feets once more. But at the age of 82 his illness got worse, smoking for 60 years is bad for you. He died peacefully with his wife next to him.

As Leonard Cohen wrote, It is in love that we are made, In love we disappear.

Wonderful bw, LChoen.
Second one is the best, and the most expressive/touching, in my understanding.

nice shots and the theme was good (in an artitic way). the B/W color did really match the mood of the place, itsvery touching and has this sentimental effect on it.....

Default Wonderful

The respect and love you had for your grandfather is shown through these images. The tonal range, and prespective give a sense of stillness and silent respect, that goes beyond words. These images are beautiful and the tonal range is outstanding.

Thank you for sharing,

rod
