He loves dicing with death....
Like I said, too far away to slap!
Believe that, and you'll believe anything.
I'll take my chances...
... in the last-chance Saloon?
This is my favourite portrait. There's probably plenty to pick fault with, but it's special to me as it marks the moment that Mrs. B. felt comfortable in front of the camera after a couple of years where health problems and medication side effects saw her lose all self-confidence as she gained 4 dress sizes. Improving health combined with diet and excercise has seen her go from a size 22 back to a size 16. A little way to go still, but the smile and twinkle in her eyes tells you everything you need to know.
This is us and us is most important. Now great grandparents and coming up 54 years.
And if I may be so bold as to say, you were punching well above your weight there sir
54? Christ that’s young to be a great grandparent.
Possibly means married/together 54 years?

Another attempt at being funny. I really should use a smiley I guess.
Or try being funny
Or stop horsing around.
Noel Edmonds I came across him while out walking in Birmingham, the picture was taken with my wife's compact camera, you guessed it my camera was at home in the camera bag! he was a charming man unlike some and did not mind at all....
I still can't put up my portraits of my late hubby. Even nearly six years on, I still have dreams so vivid I wake thinking he's still around.
I'm so glad to see photos above of wives and partners. They are so important, believe me.
I am the same with my daughter. We have no photos of her in the house other than the ones that we had in frames prior to her death. As soon as I look at old photos i'm done. We keep trying to get some more printed but neither myself, my wife or my daughter can do it yet, although Becky is better than we are. To make matters worse not long after her death I had a total HD failure on my NAS and I lost everything that was on it. A lot, although not everything by a long stroke, luckily, had been duplicated from older drives. I still cannot bring myself to connect old drives to see what is there, but certainly the 1st 18 years or so of her life will still be there (I hope).
I understand. I was lucky in that we had a long time together. Still tough though.
This is one of the reasons I tell people if you are going to have a portrait of a loved one in the room the ideal size should be 5x7 if they get to big they seem to be looking at you no matter where you are in the room, Its always a tough call when a family member passes away....my commiserations to all.
