this is garlan.

Born in 1929, Garlan is 83 years old. The step-dad of the wife of my former employer (confusing, I know), I was asked to take some shots of him for them to have as keepsakes.

In my short time spent chatting with him every time I've been around him, I've learned he was a sailor and an adventurer to be envious of. Even within the past 20 years he was still living on a sailboat, visiting exotic locations that some of us only daydream about seeing one day. 

You all know how much I love the character in the faces of older men, and Garlan is no exception. I only hope I was able to even somewhat capture the sparkle still in his eyes.
