You're right - there is definitely similarity throughout the face (and they have the same ears). My father has an amazing amount of strength (in every way the word can be taken) and I think this comes through as a visible part of his character. While he is no guru, he is an inspiring man - he has beaten cancer twice, never complained, and was back to work within a week or two. Despite that, he has never been afraid to cry when something affects him emotionally. He's one of those people who just *is* - no inconsistency, no question.

Thanks for the links - very interesting!

Comment by mocabela:
Several people remarked about the eyes being dark - if you look very closely you will see that there's a good reason for this: his eyes are closed. The shadow you see is his eyelashes, which are long and lovely (and I inherited them, happily); my father does not have very wide eyes to begin with. I think the closed eyes and the expression show his personality very well.

This is a candid shot, not a classic portrait; in any case, I do not have lighting equipment, even if I had set up this shot, which I did not. It was taken in the dining room of my house, which makes it fairly well lit under the circumstances. The lighting is all natural light, and there is a large plate glass window behind and to the side of him, which is the reason why it is whited out; this is also the only real source of illumination for the picture.

Thanks for the comments.
