Photograph - Digital Art Photography
My 92 year old father lived alone in his rural Ohio home, surrounded by beautiful trees and birds. He sacrificed for years to get his dream home away from the city. I moved to California years ago and didn't get to Ohio often. When I last saw my father, it was his 90th birthday and he was as happy as I'd ever seen him - and fairly healthy after a bout with cancer and a close call with death a few years back. This time I was there because he was in hospital again and it didn't look good. He was as alert as ever, but in considerable pain and unable to move without assistance. I stayed with a friend and went out to the house to check on things for him. It was early morning - a gorgeous autumn day with the mist from the cool morning air still rising off the dew. I knew my father would never see his beloved home again and I felt an overwhelming sadness that I could not share this glorious morning beauty with him. I've tried to capture my feelings in this digitally enhanced photography from his backyard.
