Grandpa Jack a few days before his passing.

Wendi and I went out to visit my maternal grandfather, Jack Barnett a few days before his passing.   Having just bought a new 50mm f/1.8 lens, I couldn’t just let the camera sit in the bag.   I’m immensely glad I pulled it out and just started shooting.   This is one of the best photos of him I have, and one of the last ones ever taken.   He died a few days later after something went awry with his pacemaker.
