I was going through some film recently and ran across this image I had shot of my father while he was on dialysis. I had forgotten about taking this photo with my Pentax 6×7. He did a lot of sleeping during the last couple of years of his life (he passed away September 15, 2014) and usually had his CPAP machine on while sleeping. I spent many, many hours and days with him over 2 years just like this, watching him sleep. It was peaceful and something I enjoyed, for when he would wake up, I would have the opportunity to talk with him about old times, what projects I was working on, just anything we felt like talking about. I have never been much of a person for talking, but could always find something I enjoyed talking about with my Dad.
