Doesn't matter how old you get; bills are as inevitable as death. Some of you might recognize my uncle in this image. It was taken about 1 1/2 years before his passing.
When I took it I was struck by the headline on the newspaper (he read 2 different papers every day); Slik Var Deres Liv, which loosely translates to This is What Their Life Was Like.
For those who check the EXIF you may be surprised at the use of f/2.0 here. The living room is extremely narrow, and I was trying to get a shallow dof to set my uncle off against the background of the bookcase.

Now, thanks for the encouraging response to The Art Critic, for an incredible amount of modifications - I had such a good time looking at them all. Most especially thanks to Pete for giving an HC to the image. I was very pleased to receive it.
Make it a great day,
