I was blown away by the selfless dedication of the people on that thread. They expected nothing in return, yet spent hours of their day working on the photo, it was truly heart-warming and I was excited to share it with my Grandad, as he had no idea any of this was going on.
I printed off the photos and framed my favourite one to give him as a gift. I gifted some Reddit Gold to the users who contributed as a thank-you.
Fast-forward to yesterday, where I headed over to his house with my girlfriend to give him the photos. I asked my girlfriend to record him receiving it on my phone (Nokia Lumia 920 in case anyone was wondering). We went in and said hello. The reason I wanted to video it was to show the people that had worked on the image how appreciated their efforts were. He absolutely loved the photos and I uploaded the video to YouTube that afternoon. Here’s the video:
Vanuit archiefperspectief zijn die laatste twee foto's natuurlijk het meest problematisch. Op de zwart-wit variant zijn haren toegevoegd en over de toevoegingen in de kleuren hoeven we het niet eens te hebben.
