Jogging with Grandpa

My 76-year-old dad jogs most mornings, six laps around the lake (about two and a half miles), and Anthony has been wanting to go with him. This morning, he finally could...

One Lap Down
and that's enough of that

Anthony decided that one lap was enough for him. I don't blame him. My dad, who is pretty fit, went on to do another five laps as Anthony and I went back into the house.


One comment so far...

Dear Jeffrey,

Here from Brazil, I have been following your blog daily, for both its technical and its human interest. You have given us great lessons on technical themes, have created the LR Flickr plug-in, and are telling us stories from your life in Japan and the US.

Now today’s story about your dad and your son doing their joint exercises is one of the most moving and beautiful sequences of images I have seen. They touch me deeply, at the human and the artistic level. Thanks for that.

And thanks for all your wonderful every-day stories with pictures that tell us about Japan, about Anthony, your wife, yourself – it is all told and shown in such a low-key, simple and human way that I deeply appreciate. Thanks and keep it up – people out there are listening, watching and enjoying.

Have a nice vacation in Ohio….

Best,

Chris Diewald, Brasilia, Brazil
