Models applying from all directions - what a difference... Spring must be in the air.

I really wanted to complete a series - and now there are so many series to complete...

The Most Unforgettable Character I've Met.



RAW

The single word that springs to mind as I think of him.

Everything was a measure of emotions. Plagued with an unceasing guilt that welcomed both physical and emotional pain, driven by obsessive need that was only satisfied with more guilt & pain, taking irresponsible risks, that brought people to shun his self destructive nature or ride the  roller coaster with him for as long as they could.

Larrikin, scoundrel, rascal... describe the boy that fought manhood for as long as Peter Pan. When he asked you to hover at the cliff and fly with him, it was always unclear whether he was speaking in metaphors, or would be happy to test his abilities in reality. Whenever we were actually near a precipice of any sort, he would shy away from it, ever fearful that it would be just too inviting. Everything in his world was a life and death decision, and they were always weighed up without prejudice. The fact that he has squeaked through to this stage of his life is quite an accomplishment for the forces of chance.

He hurt some people. He touched parts of their souls that they denied existed. He wanted them to experience even painful emotions, not as a punishment, but as a reward for having opened their minds to the darker reaches within.

He loved people. Deeply. But I feel he never felt worthy to stay around them in case he held them back. He needed to share the hidden depths that lay within each of them, before moving on.

Never a coward, rarely a hero but always larger than life. No-one who met him, ever forgot him.

He saved my life by lifting a burning log off my back while we were fighting bushfires and again by standing back to back when we were attacked by a gang of knife wielding thugs. For him, everyday events, for me earth shattering, monumental and unforgettable. I know he has saved other lives too.

He will live on. He has made countless people think for the first time in their lives. His magnetic personality polarized many people, they were drawn to him, or repelled quickly. He will not be forgotten.

From boyhood to manhood he has been an amazing part of my life - I wish I was with you in the last weeks, old friend.

So disappointed in the 'models' in my area... It appears I have given up my art.

Definitely strange!
I've been in the US for around a year this trip and I have sat at a computer for maybe an hour in that time, taken 4 photographs and not downloaded them yet - I guess you can say that the Artist Block has been real!

No space to shoot at home here in SC, just a tiny cottage - so the hiatus continues. Perhaps someone will inspire me enough to move from my Homer chair one day!

Thank you MOST kindly for all of the Favourites, mate. Very kind of you. Going to have to try and drag milady wife up to your neck of the woods sometime when the weather warms a little.

I'm off to Hamilton Island for a week... [link]

Pretty quiet these days, cameras have got very heavy lately. I tend to lurk a little, but save my energy for writing memoirs that will never be read.....

Hope all is well with you.

The bodies do let us down it seems. Mine's holding up pretty well, but gravity will win eventually.

We're in new digs as of August, a bit more than half the size of the previous, but we'd still find a spot for you and Gayle if you ever get out this way again.

Gravity sucks, the grave is gravity on steroids - terminal velocity steroids.

Thanks, I don't see any likelihood of making it there... if I was able to, I'd be ticking off the last on my bucket list - somewhere North of you now and closer to your former place of employment - Aurora Borealis.

Hi. I was wandering if I could use one of your amazing photographs Bartlett's Beach NSW Australia" in a movie I' m making for a contest. It will be on screen for about 4-5 seconds. Is it ok with you?' Thanks in advance.
