The Sweet Potato Shall Be Mine by TanteiKid The Sweet Potato Shall Be Mine by TanteiKid
I don't really feel comfortable sharing photos that are too personal, but since my grandfather (pictured) recently passed away, I figured it would probably help me with the grieving process a bit.

Of all my photos from Japan, this was always my favorite, so I'm glad I get to share it.

Here grandpa is being stalked by a deer determined to get the sweet potato he's eating.

I can't remember if he saw it or not...

I always felt a little shy showing him my stuff since he was such a incredible photographer, (aparently he even took a class from Ansel Adams).

You're right, I feel incredibly lucky to have the memories of this. Thank you =)

HAHAHA This is a funy shot. Hes being chased! hehe Good one. Sad to hear about your family member though. I never got to know mine, since he and my grandmother died while i was still very young. If you knew him, at least be happy to have those memories. I am jealous :D [still a funny shot hehehe too cute]

Thank you =) That's one of the reasons I love this photo even more now, it still makes me feel warm inside.

As for the deer, the ones in Nara where the photo is from are pussycats compared to the ones in Miyajima. If that was scary for me as an adult I can't imagine what your poor friend must have felt. :O_o:
This is such a great photo. It made me smile.
