This is portrait of my grandfather. I was terrified about him since I was child. This is because he was a very strict man to me as well as other people. Also, he seldom smiled and talked in front of people. So I hated such a behavior. However, I met him on the national holiday after a long time. Although his skin was still cleft with deep lines, he was too unfamiliar to me. He looked like an old tree in winter. He is not who he used to be but I miss him now.
