Opa- Dutch for grandfather- had a number of portraits done in his adult life. I’ve posted them here.
It is so interesting to see the progression of time. You can see on his face the anxiety of World War II, and you can see the smile-wrinkle lines when he is older. I especially like the 1974 photo, and have it hanging on my wall.
Enjoy with me one life:
Opa passed away October 23, 1992.
