It was my dad's birthday yesterday. there's so much to write about my dad. so many lovely childhood memories and stories to share. but for now, i shall leave them all for me, myself and my son one day. but one thing that i can share with you is, he is really wonderful, trully remarkable, amazingly wonderful! he's one cool dad, like no other. (most of us would feel that way, huh?!)
Photography's been always been dad's interest since i can even remember (together with music). and eversince both my sister and i moved to this part of the world, we've been taking him places and he's been snapping some pretty amazing shots! its a shame not to print out those photos, and so i made him a photo album. a gift for dad on his 62nd birthday.
Touching phrases and words in subtle colours. i just love the simplicity of the idea and how it turned out. inside are pictures of him during his stay with us and with my sister. we printed pictures of us, the 4 of us (dad, mum, fi and me) before we got married and with us now, the 8 of us now that each have our own families. we printed photos of my dad with both his grandsons.. just wonderful photos that will always remind him of the good fun times we had here!
We've captured so many memories everytime when my parents come for a visit. tonnes of pictures and videos of my parents and my son. i love this one the most. it was just pure love and joy everytime i see my parents with Aidan. a picture of happiness.
I made this for dad to hang in their house back in JB. the colour suited their interior, hope they'll find a spot in the house suitable for it.
We're off for a short early spring break today. we're going to Mossel, Germany later this afternoon. we're going to make sure dad will fill up that album with amazing shots of the place. (yep, hij is hier! hoera!). That's if from me this time, will come back next week and share more. have a lovely weekend you all.. sending you lots of sunshine from holland (yeay! spring is here!)
Happy Birthday Dad!! Here's to you, and to many many many more wonderful, beautiful, successful, fun and joyful years to come! Thank you, thank you for all the love and life you have given us. We love you with all our hearts and wish nothing but the best for you. May all your vision, thoughts, wishes, dreams come true. Now, let's live it and have a wonderful time!
