On this little journey I have been taking, I thought I would try something different. These are items "Left Behind" by my father. I know it's not my usual post, but this is how I saw things at the moment. All comments are welcome and I hope you enjoy this little trip I am still on.

He left a lot more behind and it is within you. You honor his memory very much by sharing your thoughts of him. The photo might be when you father was a very young but most likely it his father as a young lad judging from the clothing. I like the B/W aged look to this Paul and I hope you find yourself at the end of this journey.

Saw this in the VB. This is a very emotive image...simple and quiet, yet speaks volumes. Very nicely done.

Very nice capture the picture gives it that story element. It is also unique in the sense that these items seem to be in the last place that person left them. Thanks for sharing and nice job!

The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box. Henri Cartier-Bresson

Hello Paul...what a most precious photo. Not only the fact that these are your fathers things, but that you have treasured them in your home, but also in this photo for us all to enjoy too.
Sharing something so special is very very special. Thank you for this beautiful memory, and I like the old timey look by your using the sepia tones..nice work....V

It seems like your having a Hard Time dealing with this that you need to share it with others. Hope this outlet works for you.
Your Post today is the Best of the Bunch. The phrase " A Picture Tells A Thousand Words" could not be more True than seen here. If it's any help to you I can tell you I Lost both my parents and Two Brothers . So I do know what your going through. Just hold on to the Good Memories and let everything else go.
