Fathers and Sons

The moment I saw these photographs in Barbara Gordon's shop on ETSY, I knew I had to feature them as part of this month's theme.

Until you have a son of your own . . . you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son. You will never know the sense of honor that makes a man want to be more than he is and to pass something good and hopeful into the hands of his son. And you will never know the heartbreak of the fathers who are haunted by the personal demons that keep them from being the men they want their sons to be.

- Kent Nerburn 1917- from Letters to My Son

There is something very special about the love between a father and son and I believe the quote and the photographs truly reflect that love.

You can view more of Barbara's beautiful work either in her shop on ETSY or on her website.
