#5 To Sir With Love

Who's that man? That handsome man up there is my father. Happy Birthday papa! 
Tuesday 22nd of November was his 66th birthday and this is my gift to him. 
Luis Guillermo Diomedes aka Willie, one of the coolest men I have ever known, is the ultimate argentinian dundy! A true gentleman with unique style!
When he is not working, he spends his time listening to classical music, cataloguing old photos or meetings with friend for coffee/drinks. 
He prides himself of being a good eater (delicatessen food, a must!) and a good drinker: whiskey, beer, wine, whatever accompanies a good momento!  (obviously these two qualities run in the family!) 
He treasures objects with sentimental value, antiques especially (now we know where my love for vintage came from). Rugby is also a passion of his, he played in his younger years, creating friendship bonds that last until today, "friends that are brothers" as he likes to say. 
Movies, especially westerns, he loves! His ultimate idol is John Wayne, of course! Among his favorites film are: The Music Teacher & Dances with Wolves (he also secretly loves Zoolander, but you didn't hear it from me!) 
As you can read he is an incredible person... and I am lucky to have him as my father!
