For Paul

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 24 December 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Today my family and I say our final farewells to my wonderful younger brother Paul, at 48 years old he gave up his fight with cancer.
Thank you everyone who has sent me messages of support and thanks Judy for putting the link to some of Pauls achievements on my previous post.
Sorry I've not been around but this is a difficult time for me, I will return in the new year with some more images and to visit peoples blogs

Canon EOS 60D 1/250 second F/10.0 ISO 200 155 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Oh, Doug, I am so terribly sorry for the pain you are suffering today and days forward.
A piece of your heart 'lives' in our living room, you know, and I feel your pain.
I send my prayers for peace and comfort ... when the time is right.
Be good to yourself, my friend. ♥
