'If you are not 15 minutes early, you're late!'

The title of this post is a famous quote by my grandfather. It is one I will always remember and heed as a warning of punctuality. The above photo illustrates the consequences of being late.

I made this photo at the beginning of August. After seeing it while cleaning up post classic cookout at my grandparents' it was supposed to serve as a sketch for a portrait planned for my grandfather.

He had been diagnosed with cancer about six months prior. I had been savoring the chances I had to make photos of him and my grandmother. He passed away last Friday and this photo will now serve as a memorial to a man that inspired and cared for me.

I like the memorial shot; you've talked about this idea before right?
