Hands


The context was delightful ... and, yes: that is my 88 yo father enjoying himself at his brother's 90th birthday bash.

I wish I could see that little girl's face. She looks quite delighted from this angle!

He looks like like a lovely, gentle man, Julie. Wishing your uncle happy birthday too!

p.s. I've put my post up answering yesterday's question, and I think it's one of my more meaningful posts. Hope you enjoy reading about Sambo.

This is really a delightful post. You can virtually see your father's enjoyment from the expression in his eyes and face.

She scrambled onto Dad's knees and asked him to play horsey with her!

She is one of his brother's great-grand-children.

What fabulous genes you have! Love both of these shots and your choice to present them together. Hope the birthday party was a joy for all.

Delightful and delovely! That second shot, especially, is priceless. You dad looks like he's doing well. So glad he and his brother are still into birthday bashes!

What a delight for the brothers to have each other in their old age and older folk love the attention of the young ... look at them talking directly to each other. It makes me smile.

I love how you prepared the second lovely image with your 'hands' first photo.

Such happy pictures to brighten up the day. How wonderful for the two brothers to still celebrate together.

He is clearly not the only one enjoying himself.

What a moment you captured.
