He’s been a Grazier his entire life, but now finds himself in retirement living in a small city…..
No more manual labour, no more getting up before dawn, no more cracked & bleeding hands……
Dad is of that generation of people who dress in their good clothes to go out…. even if it’s only to the supermarket. Clothes must be ironed, & there’s usually a hat involved…..
Somehow I was able to convince Dad to sit for a formal portrait but without dressing up. I wanted to catch him in his work clothes. Clothes that now do the gardening, rather than mustering or shearing sheep all day.
Dignity comes from within, does it not?
