'He Wasn't The Perfect Dad But He Became A Perfect Grandad'

When Alina Gabrel-Kamińska became a mother, a funny thing happened.

The man who, as she had grown up, she had seen as a somewhat subpar father suddenly grew up himself... and became the perfect grandfather to her daughters Lenka and Thyme.

"Words are not my medium so the story is told with photographs, each day opening up a new short chapter into their lives." she writes on her blog.

"I would like to present to you my dad, a grandad of my little monsters. My dad wasn’t really a perfect dad, but he became a perfect grandad."

Her beautiful images show a man grasping his second chance at fatherhood with both hands.
