“Let the light shine out of darkness” 2 Corinthians 4:6.
Recently I was looking through my mom’s old pictures of the family and came across this photo that my grandfather. He took this photo in St. George’s Island, Bermuda as the sun was rising east. As I gazed upon this photo, a sense of tranquility, hope, and happiness arose within me. My grandfather was a courageous and brave man as he Marine in World War 2. He has a loving wife and two kids, one, which is my mother. Ten years ago he lost his battle with pancreatic cancer and saying goodbye was excruciating. It has changed my family and the community he has touched. He was a virtuous man who put others before him and wanted to make everyone happy. Everyone who knew him said he always brightened their day with his contagious smile and loving personality.
My grandfather also had a passion for photography and inspired me to grow a passion for it. Yes this picture is not mine, but he is the main reason why I have a passion for photography. When I shoot pictures on my free time, its like all my troubles seem to fade away.
