Death is Always The Expectation

Taking the new Fijifilm X100F for a spin on a rainy and foggy New England Winter day. More to come about this wonderful camera later.

This is part of the series I am creating around three branches in the winter. I am always fascinated with the similitude between the three branches and the blood vessels in the human body; specially the brain. Click on them to see them bigger.

I guess that's the reason I am always looking up into the sky.

The title pertains to a train of though that has been the topic on my life recently.

Lots of dear friends and family passing away and me getting to that age where I worry if I will be next.

I am reminded of the wonderful work by photographer Simon Hoegsberg, "We are All Going to Die - 100 Meters of existence". Is a sobering reminder of that big deadline we all face. Go take a look (You will need flash on your browser to see it).

I guess the important thing to remember is what we do with our alloted time. How do we make the most of it. What do we leave behind.

I recently watched the Disney movie "Coco" that deals with our memories and the memory of our loved ones. It resonated with me because I have always had similar thoughts about the people who came before us. I will probably be one of the last persons to remember my grandfathers.

How do I honor their memories? What can I do so their legacies and struggles don't fade away into oblivion?

I guess, the best I can...
