#ShitJimmyShoots

shitjimmyshoots:

After being diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer in 2007, my Dad quickly went from the best Dad in the world, to the absolute strongest human being I knew. Over the course of next 6 years he went through 8 surgeries, 8 doses of chemo, and 3 rounds of radiation. Before being diagnosed he was a world ranked runner and triathlete. It was too hard for me to photographically document his health decline from beyond athletic to absolutely disabled, but when I knew his final race was just about over I pulled out my camera and shot two rolls of film to capture what I saw as we all said goodbye to our beloved father, husband, son, friend, hero. I love you Dad and will miss you forever. 

RIP Jim O’Donnell 4/14/63 - 4/20/14

Jimmy O’Donnell, 2014

Jimmy is one of the most talented and amazing people I have ever been fortunate enough to meet. This photo set is one of the most powerful and emotional collections I have ever seen anyone capture because of how personal the relationship is between the subject and the photographer.

I adore you Jimmy; you are wonderful and I want you to know that these images brought me to tears.

Downloaded Hyperlapse and made this video of my cat.

Everyone’s lives always appear to be better than your own. You just have to remember that, in the end, we aren’t that much different from each other.
