Shadow Shot Sunday - Fathers past and present...

Father, son, grandson. Brigantine Beach, NJ, 1964
Dad and family, August 1996
Today’s Shadow Shot Sunday 2 arrives the day before Father’s Day in the US, Canada and UK. Some consider it an artificial holiday, but not I. Obviously, we like to show appreciation when we are kids for a dad (last year they grilled salmon, Ciabatta bread and vegetables – a delicious celebration :) 

However, as a father himself, the pride and happiness of our children is to be celebrated too. From the past as a child to the present day, it is a fine holiday. Add shadows, and it becomes a perfect day!

Hello Bro,

How's everybody? Is it sunny days now? Hope you have a great summer with the kids. Are they coming home for a vacation, then?

Happy Father's Day. Yeah, Father and Mother's Day must be celebrated. Scandinavia or EU will celebrate last Sunday in October.

Hope you have a great day with Mrs. P.

Hugs from D´Box.
