    I love how the diagonal divides the image into shade and light. Now knowing the story behind the image it’s almost like the blurred background with the golden light is a metaphor to where he has gone to: into the light.

    Mark…….so many memories and events I have let slide by with only the latent images left in the folds of grey. So proud of you for honoring the moment with your camera…….stay on center (it’s my one day @ a time mantra). en theos….j
