This is not my Father, sadly my Father died in 1991 while I was far to busy with my own life to even think about what may be happening in his.

I have made a resolution to visit my Fathers grave.

This is a friend of mine and a fine British actor.

I am working on a Feature Film at the moment (my first ever) and this was taken during a break in filming, Thanks Mark

I very much enjoyed this photo and the message.

Reading your photographer's notes, even though it has been over 20 years, sorry for your loss. A poignant image for me while I still have my father.

Take care sir.

Great movement in this shot, excellent lighting as well, quite pensive- for both the viewed and the viewer.

Well played... well played. If I knew it was staged I wouldn't have given you that 10. Kidding:)
I'm sorry about your Father. I hope you will have a chance to visit his grave.

That's an amazing portrait. The light is great and shows all the wrinkles. The expression on his face looks very realistic (reminds me of people with dementia or Alzheimer's but I hope that's not the case :( One of my top three in the challenge. Great resolution too. All the best to you and your father!

Nice portrait, I like the lighting in his hair. Very thoughtful pose. Is Mark your father?

good idea, I like this, just a little dark on one side of his face though!

Composition seems a little off, but this is a lovely image of your father, and I do like your tones/lighting.
