This weekend between Father’s Day and Independence Day (USA), I was reflecting on a few things. What it means to be a dad. What my Dad means to me. In that spirit, I present this portrait of my Father, who drove four days and over 3,000 miles to see me this weekend.

Love ya, Dad.

    Great image, James :)

    A few months ago, my dad was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), so Father’s day was important for me this year as well and a good deal of reflecting was done.

    Now, I’m not normally one to drop stuff like that on a public site, but this photo really captured MY mood as well and wanted to say so.

    Good Job :)
