Life is not a continuum. It is not one big sweeping expanse of time and experience. Life is a collection of moments held in trust somewhere inside your cranium. Not all moments are equal. Some are worth keeping like rare coins, but most are dribbled away in a rush to buy the next moment and the next and the next million.
And thanks for your service.
Great stuff as usual. Always inspiring. Thanks bro.
I used it because it somehow captures the Union station I have known through the bad times to good times and back again. There is always heart and soul in your work. That elevates the artist above the hobbyist, and even above many dedicated picture takers who wish to keep a record.
Thanks for the feature in your article Jim, so appreciate your support of my work. My Street shooting is a bit of a journal of my days. As an Artist this Historic Union Station is where I returned to America for my first job back to Art. I still pass thru this amazing structure frequently, never without one of my cameras. It is a place of travel, perfect for shooting the street. Travel, with your camera and you will go far.
Thank you, Andrei. Yes, that is a very important photo to me. Holcolmb was one of my squad leaders and always had my back. He had been wounded twice before the battle in Nov. 66 that finally got him. Soft spoken deer hunter from Look Out WV, but tough as nails. There are two other very important people in the post: Clifford Wheeler and Colleen Henderson. I had great interviews with both in 2020 and 2021 but discovered while I was writing this that they have both passed away. It was a shock. Both were terrific artists and wonderful people.
So glad you included the photo of the soldier on the day he died. That is a very important photo, and I congratulate you on having the courage to post it.
As usual, your commentary is inspiring.
