Thanks, Steve, I appreciate the words
Even tho he was 93, I honestly believed that he'd be with us for a few more years.
When people live this long, you start thinking they'll live for 100 years and more. The news really caught me off guard.
We are comforting ourselves thinking that he wasn't alone even tho nursing homes have been on lockdown for the past 2 weeks.
My aunt works there and she was able to keep visit him every day as usual. She was with him.

My Grandad passed away this morning and I just wanted to share this picture of him drinking beer on his 91th birthday. That was 2½ years ago.
He always liked beer, even in his nursing home years, he'd drink a pint almost every day. Old habits.
The last time I visited him, he was still recovering from a rough pneumonia and I held his beer for him so he could drink.
It was good day.
Sorry for your loss.

If you have good memories and a few photos then that's certainly a good thing.

Being sudden can be more of a shock but I think it's a lot better than a long decline, for everyone involved.

My condolences! One of my grandpas was like that, he always had a shot of schnapps before he went to bed. (Then the false teeth went into the glass beside the bed)

Old print I just found, taken on a sproket rocket. The long narrow negatives are obnoxious to work with, my favorite part of the camera is shooting with it.

Sorry for your loss, I hope to also be drinking beer when I'm 91!

Not the vacation or scout-like stuff but I remember sitting with him in his kitchen often. Not that we'd talk much, he wasn't the chatty time but, you know, you don't realize how you miss these moments 'til they're gone.
I remember watching him paint his model cars or make his Christmas decorations. 3/4 of our Christmas ornaments were made by him, he was very productive; Christmas, St Valentine, Easter, Halloween, his room would change with the seasons. When he moved to the nursing home, I'd randomly visit him once in awhile to give him a wet shave, watch hockey or just sit there for awhile when he was asleep. My aunt was visiting him every day since she's working there. Sometimes I'd go there with my dad and his brother happened to be there too and my aunt would show up for lunch. Everyone taxing his beer...loll

Here, I posted a picture of him from back when he was hockey coach.

There's always so many good pictures in this thread. It's nice to see what so many talented folks are up to. Here's something I shot last weekend;



Foma 400, EI 200, developed at normal times for the film (so not a pull) in Clayton F76. Took this with my MX and a Tamron 90 f2.5.

Well having spent most of my time restoring and fixing cameras I have finally started getting stuff processed etc. Heres a test shot from a Canon AE-1. Scanned from negative by the lab and only post processed a touch to darken it a bit as the lab was a bit sloppy. Ilford HP5 shot with standard 50mm f1.8 at f5.6 on overcast gloomy day.

Actually re-looking it may have been shot on the Canon FD 35-70 either the variable 3.5-4.5 or the earlier fixed F4 version. I had both when this was taken last year but I didn't like the feel of them, lacked tactile response.
