Finding a well-lit macro subject inside my house on a dark January afternoon is a challenge but yesterday I spent some time studying an old ship’s lantern on our mantel. The brass and glass light above is one of a set of three from my father-in-law who spent his working years sailing the world, away from home for up to six months at a time. When John was small these long voyages felt like forever but when Joe returned he always had an exotic find and at least one wild story to share with the family. Some of these finds have made their way to our home now and listening to John tell Ryan about Grandpa Joe’s travels brings Joe back to us too.
