Artist's Description

…yes.. even someone as old as me has a father!!!

My father folks…father of 7, grandfather of 5 (and terminally ill atm and facing the battle of his life)

…from whom i’ve inherited all my photographic intuitiveness (as well as sarcasm, acerbic tongue, cynacism, alcoholic tendencies, ‘mad eyes’ and refusal to grow old!!!)

…taken August 07, aged 82
and still working as a mighty fine jeweller in the heart of Sydney!!!

(i’m SO tempted to put him in Endangered Species!!!)

Edit: Dad finally at peace and pain-free after an excruciating ten months… 20th Sept 2010
Miss you heaps, “Father”!..but forever in your debt ♥
