Daily Photo Phix: Daddy

"Gravestone"

I was walking through a downtown Boston cemetery and taking note of the various distinguished markers, honoring those who passed a long, long time ago.  Most dates were in the late 1800s.  This particular one struck me for it’s simplicity and for the intimacy of the remembrance; not a name, no dates… merely “Daddy“… and I wondered about the story.

Taken with the Olympus PEN EPL2 and Panasonic 20 f1.7 combo.  I used the in camera pinhole art filter and that’s about it.  Translation: no other post-processing required.  The PEN art filters are good like that.
