Well as most of you have probably noticed, I've been a little quiet here on DA lately. No new photos, nothing. It is mainly due to my father passing away on May 5th. He was diagnosed with Mesothelioma a few months ago, which is related to asbestos exposure some 40 years ago. My father was very strong and healthy. Even at the age of 70 he was very independent and let a very active lifestyle. It was so hard to see all of that change few months ago. The strong independent man we knew was quickly whithering away. He couldn't stand it felt that it was no way to live. After a few months of treatment, he could no longer breathe very well on his own and spent his last few days in hospital. My family was able to see him a few hours before his death. It was so difficult for all of us. My dad knew that he wasn't going anywhere and felt that the end was very near. We all felt so completely helpless at the fact that there was nothing that could be done. He took his last breath that evening. We are all terribly hurt at the loss of my father, Fritz. I feel that there are so many life lessons left to learn. So many more adventures and stories to hear about. I was hoping that he'd be able to hold some grandchildren one day...

So, anyways... I'll be back to taking photos again, but it will take a bit of time to collect myself once again and find my creative ambition.
