Sean took this on 17 October 2007, exactly three years before he died. He captioned it ‘My dad’.

    It’s wonderful.

    I’ve always loved this photo, especially the slight haziness. It gives it a really funky twist. It seems to me to be the kind of photo you see of celebrities in their more thoughtful, private moments – but modern. Is it an effect they use nowadays? I think it is. Sean led the way! Would be great as an album cover.

    Its a guinness advert!

  4. Thank you, AP and PG. Guinness never had to advertise too hard where I was concerned, PG, as AP knows … preaching to the converted. 🙂

    I don’t remember Sean taking the photo … I suppose he was experimenting with this effect … I do like it.

    You may remember a paragraph I wrote about you some time ago. I spoke of you as a strong house of stone with open doors and windows. I said that all sorts of winds could whistle within and without, but that nothing on earth could ever move that house.

    This photograph is what I was trying to say.

    The paragraph and the photograph come from a time before your terrible tragedy. You have never faltered.

    • Thanks very much for that, Cymbeline … I appreciate it. Yes, I think I and my family have stayed strong. I’m very tired just at the moment between work demands and various other things that have come up.

      Birthday party for Clio tonight.

      Last night we were at a wake in Dublin … of the mother of the neighbour you spoke to on the day that Sean died.
