Ok, I want to hear this guy play. I’m impressed by his resume. Now I have to get back to researching Gary… 😛
And nice pictures as always, TR.
PS – I wonder if he’d appreciate getting that name banner back, as a keepsake? 😉
Sweet fuckin’ Jesus! I am blown away. I’m used to thinking of all these former occupants as either dead or really abstract. That is almost too much information.
Have you ever read the book The Dead Horse Investigation? It’s great, I recommend it – about photography forensics.
That book got my mind cranking about “solving pictures” that have no included information. Photography riddles, as it were.
I loved your shot of Mr. Lemmon’s desk so much, I just had to find out more. Who is this guy? Is he still around? What did he do there? What’s his story? etc. Thanks for the inspiration to do some sleuthing and test my abilities.
Again, it’s a great shot. Is it ok if I use them? (IP said it was kosher but I just wanted to confirm with you) 🙂
I’m quite frankly amazed at what you’ve been able to do. And I may take you up on your book recommendation; it sounds interesting. You are welcome to any of my shots, just let me know where and which you’re using 🙂
Absolutely! Can you shoot me an email at sometimes (dot) interesting (at) gmail (dot) com so I have your address? I will let you know what I use and where it gets posted. 🙂
