As I was digging through old slides, I ran across this wonderful shot. He seems so….full of life…and I couldn’t help but reflect on the fact that he died this last year. I still remember him as he was when I shot him 24 years ago…young and somewhat pudgy…not at all the serious, stark, gaunt figure he was in that last year. It makes one reflect on the impermanent, temporal nature of existence. (At least it does, for me.) Which brings up my self imposed Mission Statement: Immortalize it All! Leave behind Coherant Images That Tell The Story of Life and All I Got To See…. I’m 55 now. I figure I’ve still got 20-30 years of cogniscent story telling….
