Fathers

Personal

About this time last year I learned how to develop film and print my own images in the darkroom. I wanted to give my first finished picture to my dad for his birthday on June 23rd. I agonized over which image to choose. I finally decided on this iris and spent weeks perfecting my chemical baths, lights, and dodging and burning to create a portrait I was proud to give him.

He was the one who gave me my first camera and encouraged my love of photography. He has been proud of me every step of the way through all trials and tribulations.

I have just experienced my first Father’s Day without my father. He passed away July 7th, 2006 from lung cancer at age 60. I miss him immensely and wish I could share many more pictures with him.

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” Jim Valvano

p.s. I wish I had more pictures of my Dad – take your camera with you every single time you see your parents. You won’t regret it.
