For my first post on this blog, I want to show a photograph that is not only visually appealing, it is also very special to me. This is a picture of my grandfather, George Blake Sr., taken in 1988.

Many people have commented to me about how much they like it. I like it too but I can’t explain exactly why I like it, other than it’s my grandfather.

Perhaps it’s the smoke or the mystery of what he is looking at. I don’t know. What do you think?

Technical Details:
Date: 1988/04/17
