Dear photograph..

I've wanted to do dearphotograph-style stuff ever since I discovered the website. It's not a new concept, but it puts people together from all over the world and shows we're all the same. We all have photos and memories, and it's awesome to see them from other people and time periods. Someone bet me that I was sentimental the other day… I think I may have just lost that. Shh..

 

:) Anyway, this is a pretty personal one. It's my grandpapa. Amazing musician (he's the one that played jazz here), incredible husband, father, grandfather and man. We still have people to this day walk up to us and offer their condolences in the Czech Rep. Which brings me to this - a few days ago, it was 15 years since he passed. I will never forget that day. If there's anyone in the entire world I could ever wish for 24 more hours with, it would be him. When you're that young, you don't think of asking questions about what it was like getting interrogated by Soviet soldiers while walking to school as a little boy, being sent off on a train at 4am every morning with only a slice of bread, working a day job and playing jazz gigs at night to support his family… etc. My respect is endless.

 

Rest in Peace. I miss you.
