Today is my grandfather’s birthday, so here’s a picture of him and my dad on a hike:
The original was overexposed, so the staff darkened it a bit and produced this copy. I have no idea where this was taken due to having seen it for the first time earlier this evening. We’ll get some background on it for you in the near future.
If I may bluster a moment, Norman Rockwell himself could not have produced a better father-son picture than this. Not without a camera, anyways, the man was a painter.
Grampa would’ve turned 111 today if he hadn’t disappeared during that experiment with the intrinsic field subtractor.
[UPDATE 6/18/11:] I’m told that this picture was taken in the Great Smoky Mountains.
