Third Generation

Black And White Photography, Joseph, Photography

This is Gerry and he’s a third generation paving and masonry contractor from Ireland. He’s currently doing some work at my home. He’s pictured here with his sons Jimmy and Michael after a hard day of work. Perhaps I should have titled this image third and fourth generation.

Image was taken with a Fujifilm X-H1 and XF 56mm f/1.2 lens

Settin’, Thinkin’

100 word fiction

Just settin’ here, thinkin’ bout how far we come and what we got. It ain’t much, but it’s gold. Not real gold, mind you. Don’t need anybody come knockin down my door like they done with Carl. He’s got them bars on the door and window now. Afraid of losin’ somethin’ more. That’s all you really need, someone who’s got yer back. Day in, day out. Well, I got Ruthie and she got me. We’re the lucky ones. Been that way for almost twenty years now. Don’t need anything else. ‘Cept maybe a cold beer on a warm summer night.
