I've known my buddy Dave for a long time. He's become a very close friend, and I love hanging around with him and talking geek-stuff and recording podcasts and everything. His father, who lives in Taiwan, has visited Dave twice in the years that I've known him, and on his second visit last year, Dave hired me to make some portraits of his father.
I was going to write about a fantastic evening and dinner at Dave's and then how his father, Ingram (though he also likes to be called Sam) played some music for us and how we talked for hours about his home and his life working in missionaries in both Taiwan and the US, but instead I just want to focus on the image above, and how much I love the look of intensity on his face while he played for us.
You can see a few more images here, but I wanted to just concentrate on this image. I love it. I feel it's a beautiful portrait, and I'm so glad I finally got to meet the father of a very good friend.
