Courage...

   Those who met him say that he was a gentle soul,a couragious character, a calligrapher,a good dancer, a person who knew how to enjoy the simple things in life,a perfumer, a traveled man and a good father. Maybe they are right...maybe not. Sometimes when a man we love dies we only remember the best of him...
  I like to think of him this way...a noble man! My grandfather who I never met.

A picture of him at 1927 when he was a soldier at Larisa. The suit he is wearing was given to him by the photographer  and it's the only photo of the years at the army that he is not in his military uniform.


His was well known for his courage between the family members.


At this picture he is only 21 years old, he passed away at 1976 a few months before I was born. Wish we had met grandfather...


  This whole project was inspired by the challenge at Bird is the word with the word "courage". There is a sketch which gave me inspiration for the composition.





 It will also be my entry for another challenge at Berry 71 bleu where "anything goes" for the month of July.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog...!
