About the Shot
My wife's Grandfather, I call this "True Love." The photo was taken in his home in Trencianska Tepla, Trencin/Slovakia. I only take photos of people candid, well most photos, 98.9% of the time, I cannot stand posed photos, but anyhow, we made a canvas of him and his wife who just died this past christmas of cancer. She did not know she had cancer, and found out days before she would pass. Dedko (grandpa in Slovak) started breaking down seconds after this photos and as you can see, this is a moment, of real love. For me, his experience, made me realize, even if I am married or even if I have had that love feeling with others, "Have I truly experienced true love myself?" His experience has really made me think.
