Dad and Joyce: at home


Dad needed some passport type pictures so he can apply for his disabled “blue” badge. His mobility is VERY limited of late and he should have had the notorious blue badge years ago.

Dad and Joy: they’ve looked better but passport photos are supposed to be void of all emotion – aren’t they ?!

 

So I took the opportunity to capture them in their natural habitat.

The house is always warm so no shoes is the order of the day. Being barefooted improves their stability: "it lets me FEEL the ground where I wouldn't be able to with shoes" ~ Dad

The dressing on Joyce's right shin is the latest in a line of scars from falling over. They've had a stair lift fitted in the last couple of weeks which means Dad doesn't have to stand behind Joy while she climbs the stairs anymore.

"I'm coming in close - don't be afraid" - oops too late.

Dad has never needed much encouragement to pull a funny face - Joyce is a bit more reserved.
