As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country...
Proverbs 25:25...
I shot this existing light image of my late father in 1995 ..Of course at that
time I used film and not digital...I am so thankful that I captured this shadow and
light image of him by his lamp reading the newspaper which he did every day until he had his stroke in 2002 and he died in 2003...

After Dad's stroke whatever he read did not make sense to him as he thought
the author kept repeating the same lines over and over..This is why it is so imperative to capture those natural shots which we like to remember our loved ones by because someday it may be too late..
