Full of Charm | Wally

When my sister-in-law asked if I could photograph her granddad I was more than happy to oblige…I knew he was quite the character – and he didn’t let me down!

At 93 he still has a quick wit and an incredible memory!


Wally has been collecting stamps for well over 40 years!  Those are half-penny stamps in his hand!



After looking at his stamps and having a little chat we went off to wool winding in the activities room – it was quite a serious task 🙂


Giving me cheek!


Several games of Rummikub later…!  Sprinkled with a few laughs it was mostly very serious too.  Throw in a few hilarious (to me) high school girl antics by some of the other ladies – it was highly entertaining!!


Don’t forget to watch the video…it’s much clearer if you click on the link to watch it directly in Vimeo 🙂

    John Brimblecombe - This is still the Wally I knew 30 or so years ago. You are a happy man Walter!
    And all those years a secretary to the Pirrinuan branch of the Queensland Grain Growers.

    I was lucky to have two Schelberg families as neighbours. There were none better.ReplyCancel
