Dad.

This is probably the most difficult and disheartening post I'll ever write, so I'll just get right to it. Ten days ago today, my dad passed away. He was one month away from turning 51.

My dad and I always had a weird relationship. I used to be a daddy's girl but then puberty hit me hard and I became much more distant, alas. Ever since I started showing interest in photography, his hobby turned passion, we reconnected, though I will never forgive myself for not telling him how much I love him, and not spending enough time as father and daughter.

Because words can't really describe how confused and sad I feel, I'm just gonna go and post a bunch of his pictures.

My dad doing what he loves: Taking pictures of things. 


Enya, our cat, looking gorgeous and unimpressed, as always


Fonzie, our previous kitty. I like to believe he is now reunited with my dad. They were best buds. 




If there's one thing I would like you all to take away from this post, it would be to NEVER put off reconnecting with a family member or a friend because you have 'time'.

And to my dad: I never ever stopped loving you, I just lost the ability to show it.

Wat ontzettend heftig en erg. Ik wil je heel heel veel sterkte wensen. Ik geloof dat als jij een connectie voelde door de fotografie hij vast ook gevoeld heeft dat jij van hem houdt. Nogmaals heel veel sterkte, en wat een prachtige foto's.

I'm so very sorry to hear this. 51 is way to young. I also have a distant relationship with my father but we've been working on becoming closer. Your post reminds me of how important this really is.

oh wat triestig, veel sterkte gewenst. Dat laatste zinnetje heb ik ook zo hard. Het is zo moeilijk soms om zo'n dingen onder woorden te brengen maar ik ben zeker dat hij wel wist dat je hem doodgraag zag hoor. Ouders hebben soms niet veel woorden nodig om dat aan te voelen..

Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. If you'd like to ask a question, be sure to leave an e-mail address or whatevz so I can get back to you, because otherwise I'll just get all awkward and forget to reply, which comes off rather shitty, but I swear I'm actually a pretty okay person in real life. Promise!
