This photo is loaded with meaning for me. Firstly, the subjects are my grandfather (now 10 years deceased) and my first son, age 5 months. They are meeting for the first time. Then the setting. It’s a cottage that my grandfather built, one of three on Maple Lake in Ontario. He also made almost all the furniture in the house, including the table and chair in this pic. Finally, since I spent 2 months of every summer here for many years, I have clear memories of many people, events, and feelings.

My grandfather is about 91 years old in this pic, my son 5 months.
Frank (which he preferred to be called) lived to age 101.
