I shot this photo with my Pentax 6×7 at a local Edmond area nursing home. My father-in-law stays there and I visit from time to time. During lunch I like to talk to the patients there and often ask if I can take their photo. Most of them are staying there with nobody to visit them so they love when someone like me gives them attention and especially when I offer to take their photo. I usually go back with a print in a few days which they often hang on their wall.
I shoot most of my environmental portrait work with my Nikon digital cameras, but I still enjoy the occasional portrait with a film camera like my Pentax.
