I'm familar with the photographer, John van Putten. He just recently won an award for one of the best newspaper photographers across Canada. Quite a prestigeous honour.

Anyways, I had seen him before, but never chatted with him. So, on this occasion, I walked up to him and confirmed he was who I thought he was, and he was. Very Happy On the previous occasion, we were both photographing a police funeral.

He was on assignment in the area where my wife and I were taking photos. Later, he took the above photo, and we re-chatted and asked my name, etc.

I think he was surprised to be recognized, and I also congratulated him on his award. I think he felt good about that.

By the way, John was the one who took THIS PHOTO IN THE PAPER at the same time I did a while back. I happened to mention this, and we had a good laugh about it.

Well Rain I'm very impressed (also a bit depressed but that's another matter)
What kind of flower was it? Do you ever photograph any flowers that have some colour to them?

Why are you so depressed? Lovely wife, lovely house, lovely car, beloved A2K member. What more could you ask for?

Yes, I mostly shoot in color. don't know why this one wasn't. :wink:

A Mocca man in a wigwam sitting on a Reservation.
With a big black hole in the belly of his soul
Waiting on an explanation
While the white man sits on his fat can
And takes pictures of the Navajo
Every time he clicks his Kodak pics
He steals a little bit of soul.
Every time he clicks his Kodak pics
He steals a little bit of soul.

Wow! you look great, Reyn. Well, the American Indians believe that if they are photographed, their soul will be forever stolen. (or used to believe that)

Farmerman--

Nope--Pocono Medical Center.

"Allentown Hospital" is now part of the Lehigh Valley Hospital System. These days the building is pretty much devoted to clinics, an Inner City ER and various therapy programs.

You know, it was really only a matter of time before Reyn became a human interest story himself.
