Grandpa's Camera by EneKiedis Grandpa's Camera by EneKiedis
My grandfather passed away last week. It was a nightmare. My mom was devastated, completely heart broken. God, it was awful.

I had never attended a funeral before, and I'm certain I don't ever want to do it again. Everyone was crying and wearing black, and there was this rotten smell of flowers in the air, it was just horrible.

But he didn't suffer much, and I know he's in a better place right now. I wish I got to live as long as he did. I'm going to miss him.


Well, this was his camera. He bought it in Germany 40 years ago. This is what I chose to remember him by.

And since I suck at writing these things, I thought a picture would be more illustrative. This is my homage to him.

Rest in peace, grandpa <3




[Oh, the camera is a Revue 250 bs, made in Western Germany].

I'm sorry to hear about your grandfather. I've been through two funerals lately, my mum and my uncle. It's been lousy, but that's all a part of life. Remember him as the best that he was and learn from his life. :)

I'm sure he'll be proud of you, wherever he is.
