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.

It’s Been A Year Already ?

I want congratulate my friend and fellow blogger “Uncle Spike” on the one year anniversary of the guest bloggers segment on his really cool site “Uncle Spikes Adventures”.

I was kind of freaked out when he asked me to to a guest post and I foolishly agreed because I had never done anything like this before. I am not a writer, I take photos (yikes what have I got myself into). For my friends in the USA thoughts of the TV show “The Honeymooners” and Ralph Kramden kept running through my mind (“I got a BIG MOUTH”).

Spike assured me I would be fine and he to told me to just document a day in my life with photos and don’t sweat the writing part. Well this is not exactly a typical day in my life but my contribution to the guest post is called “Making Music, Literally” which can be viewed along with other guest posts by clicking the link below.

Thank you again Spike and here’s to another year of guest posts. Cheers 🙂
