Grandpa by alanbecker Grandpa by alanbecker
summer assignment, involving the use of a reflective surface to portray a self portrait.

I used the glass covering over my Grandpa's picture.

He's not alive anymore, and I really regret not going with him to test his model airplanes every time he asked. I was too busy playing video games. :(

Hey, it's alright to regrets things and a thousand people, including myself right now, can tell you "He forgive you" but you never forgive myself. When my grandfather died, I regretted a lot. But in the end, he loves you and that's all that should matter :)
