That's about the same image I was confronted with recently when my 79 year
old father-in-law was hospitalized with pneumonia [the same generous soul
that gave me my Leicas].  Since things were very grim, I took the M3 and
Noct, but upon seeing just how bad he looked, I refrained from taking any
pictures at all.  Later, my wife said she was glad I hadn't taken any shots
of him looking that way.

Fortunately, he is now on the road to recovery.

while visiting my 97-year-old grandmother in her dimly lit nursing home. As
she was into her final weeks I felt some moral queasiness about the whole
thing but shot anyway. The result

was something a bit spooky and for sure it does not hang on my wall.
