Portraits- Ayah Lang

This is my 82 year old uncle from Singapore. The one thing I remember about him is that he always had a camera with him. Ever since I can remember he would be taking pictures. I see him on family occasions nowadays and as always never without a camera, an old Minolta.

We had a huge family day last week where 450 people turned up (yes, I have a huge family) and Ayah Lang was there with his camera. His once steady hands shakes tremendously now and he takes a longer time to take a picture while he steadies his hands and I realised at that time what he meant to me.

He is the kindest and gentlest person I have ever know and I am happy that this portrait captures that essence of him.

    Thanks for dropping by. No. This is from my father’s side. Jieca is from my mother’s side……
