Weekly Photo Challenge: Good morning

Rob O'Halloran

When I saw the topic for today’s photo challenge I immediately thought of this photo of my brother Robert. It was taken around 1965-66. I was still in primary school and I think Rob was doing a mechanical apprenticeship. He loved his sleep and used to look a REAL SIGHT when he first woke up.

I insisted in taking this photo with him carrying my school bag on his shoulder. I think I took the photo on an old box brownie camera – that was all we had then. I loved the way that he went along with the idea of catching him first thing in the morning just as he rolled out of bed.

Rob passed away suddenlyย  in September 2008, aged fifty-seven. He always enjoyed a good laugh! Even at his funeral there were lots of tales of incidents from his life where we remembered him with a smile. He was well-loved by family and friends.
