Connecting with my Dad

This is for the group Parallel Vision. This weeks word is connection. So I guess I need to explain why I think this fits. See, my dad is 83 years old and his memory is now very poor. He cannot remember very much any more. If you ask him he will say he didn't take photography classes. He can't remember he had a darkroom. But if you get out one of his many old cameras, he lights up and can tell you exactly how it works. He remembers how fast his lenses were and what kind of film he used. Amazing. It is a way I can connect with my dad. I did that with him today, and it was good:)

 

Oh, sorry for the dippy overload. I can't seem to take a photo that stands alone.
