Goin’ Back


oing back even further. Back to around 1980 to be exact. Back to a time when pictures were made on film. Black and white film called Tri-X. Its ISO was 400 but it could be manipulated in exposure and development.

I’d like to say that those were the days. But, they weren’t.

I worked hard. My work got better. I had a couple of mentors in those early days who were rough, tough and fair. They taught me what it really meant to make good photographs.

That’s the thing.

You see the face of one person who’s done well. It could be a photographer, or a musician or a jet fighter pilot. Everyone of those people had a team of people working behind the scenes to put them on their stage, whatever it might be.

You never really do it alone.

      If you were in New Orleans you could dance and march at the same time. It just works that way.
