I was sorting through some old images and came across this one and stopped in my tracks. I realized the person wearing the red flannel shirt in the background is no longer with us. This image is about six years old and it was taken after a four hour photo walk with my dear late friend Patricia Fogarty. Patti was also one of the original seven Main Contributors on our black and white only website Monochromia. Patti was a great street photographer and I learned so much from her. One of the best things about going into Manhattan to shoot with Patti was enjoying a cold IPA (or maybe a few) afterwards and talking for hours. From our start as photo bloggers we became the best of friends in real life. I miss you Patti.

Time Of Your Life

To all of my friends – until we meet again

“Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test and don’t ask why
It’s not a question but a lesson learned in time

It’s something unpredictable but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what its worth, it was worth all the while

It’s something unpredictable but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

It’s something unpredictable but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

It’s something unpredictable but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life”
