BOMONSTER's Dad Stays In The Picture

My dad passed away in 2015 at age 84. We both liked cars and motorcycles and we went to all kinds of events together. I like to take pictures for future reference for my art projects and usually have to wait for the crowd to clear before getting the shot. But my dad had a funny habit of always stepping into the picture just as I was ready to get the shot. I'd say "Dad, get out of my picture!" and he would step back thinking he was safe. So I have lots of pictures that look like this:

Since my photos were for my own reference, not publication, I didn't have the heart to tell him to step even further back, so I just took the picture. And in looking at these pictures, I am so happy I didn't. We had some good times walking and talking cars in his later years and I have the pictures to prove it.
