05.12.2013 Miami Beach, Florida

This was taken on the last visit when things, my parents health, was still ok. They were having their problems, but seemed to be managing the day to day. This was 7 months before my dad passed away. Around 2 July mother called about dad being in hospital. His doctor worked on him through the night. Told me my father had several cardiac arrests….

05.12.2013 : Night Swim

After a good dinner, and a glass of malbec, I’d sit by the pool and take some photos. Some nights I just sat there, star gazing while the warm humid night air enveloped me like a blanket during the warmer months.

Night Swim : 21 March 2016

I was always tempted to join these people swimming in the pool late at night. A lot of my night shots were after 9pm. But I more often wanted to watch. Take photos. I saved my swims for early morning. Break of day stuff. 6:30am. An hour. Then sitting in the sun for a bit to dry off.

Bill passed 3 October 2018. Too young, too full of life. Some things just aren’t right. This is one of them. He was a good man. Family, friends, we will all miss him. This photo was taken 19 April 2008.

Drunken Boat : Color No. 1

These distracted me a bit from the day to day, at least for a few minutes, and were therefore invaluable. A form of photo therapy. Preferred to eat…

Pool at Night

Miami Beach, Florida October 2015. It has become the norm. Going down to Miami to help my aging mother. It’s about every four to five months now a visit for several weeks. After dinner I go down to the restaurant and have a glass of malbec. Then I sit on a lounge chair beside the pool. Often I take photos. Some intentionally blurred. Some…
