Hi everyone and hope all are having a great weekend! Well this man right here dubbed el capitan is my pops an all around great guy with a big heart and a smile that is always ready to make the family laugh! About 10 years ago he lost his vision but taught me a valuable lesson, when my son was born he taught me that a person doesn't see everything with there eyes but more so with there heart so cheers to you Dad! by the way i'm buttering him up as i need a hand with my yard as he made me push the mower many of times when i was younger,lol!

hope everyone has a great weekend and please stay well!

A very wonderful and touching narrative Tony.
You must feel and justifiably so, very very proud of your dear Dad as I am sure he does of you likewise.
Great portrait. A wonderful image for the family album too.

Have a great weekend. Stay well.

A wonderful narrative tony, and a great mono conversion. Lovely detail, good catchlights in the eyes, and a super expression that gives the viewer a hint of his personality. Very well done!
Have a great weekend.
