My Grandfather in Germany by Eszies-Eszie My Grandfather in Germany by Eszies-Eszie
This is a picture of my grandfather. I wanted to post this picture a long time ago, but I couldn't find the disc whith these pictures.

This picture was taken in Luxembourg, in Mertret. A town just over the border with Germany, at the river Syr/Syre. 

When you take a close look to the rail, you can see the cane of my grandfather. He really hates that thing, but he needs it.

My grandfather is one of the most amazing men I've ever met. He always tells me stories about the war and he sailed on a fishing boat when he was young.
He's 80 years right now and I hope he'll be with me for some time to come.

EDIT=

After years, I finally found the exact place where I took this picture. It's Esplanade de la Moselle :) I hope to go back there, because this was the last picture I ever took of my grandfather. It's Esplanade de la Moselle

That's good that your grandfather is still with you. Praise God on that one. My grandfather died back on 2006. He was in a war too. He fought in the Navy during WWII. He hated war.
But that's good that you're grandfather is still around. I hope he has a long life.

My grandfather was around 10 years when the war started. He and his family went to Germany for a year and he never finished school.

And I really hope he will be with me for some long, long time to come. :)

Thank you for the :+fav:'s :hug:

When I first looked at this, I thought he looked a little bit like my paternal grandpa, who died shortly before my ninth birthday.

I wish I could've gotten to know him better. :/

But anyways, this is a nice picture :D I like the colours, and the shadow of the railing on the ground is cool XD
The odd lighting kind of draws attention to your grandfather, I think.

Aw, I know what you mean. My other grandfather (the father of my mom) died when I was 11, I never quite knew him that good, since he moved away when I was 5. :hug:

This is the best picture I ever made of my grandfather... I guess this is the best picture I've ever made.

Thank you for your sweet comment :hug:
