In general I hate to play favorites but I don’t mind putting together a special collection of portraits I’ve taken of my closest friends. I’m saving this collage in my people folder so I can pull it up when I’m in New England thinking or Oregon and who I left behind. I’ve known some of these folks since the very early days after I moved here. Some have taken me in their homes on holiday and treated me like family. Some have kept me company and given me their advice, laughter and threats of bodily harm. 🙂 Some have allowed me to teach them about photography and all the pleasure it can bring to their lives. Some have put smiles on my face and to return the favor now and then. I’ll miss each and every one of them. I’ll stop crying now and post this picture while I can still see.
Heavens, I knew I would forget somebody. I’ll just add a separate portrait of Jack under the collage. 🙂
