Default Just Eagles - Not my photos

Hi all

I really like this (late) photographer's series.

Just thought I would share.

Yes, he was an excellent photographer. I only recently discovered him and meant to bookmark the site but somehow got distracted. If you like to wander around looking at professional photographic work, go to the link below, which is a "hidden" page at my Web site. Scroll to the bottom where I have a number of favorite professionals listed. Naturally, Ansel Adams is at the top and would be there even if I hadn't listed them alphabetically by last name. Weejee is down near the bottom, but in my heart, he belongs further up the line:

I post on another forum where Bill Silliker Jr. used to posts. He was very good, and a nice person too. Unfortunately, he died just recently of a heart attack in Baxter State Park up in Maine (near the Canadian border... I've actually been there once.)

Assuming you can read this without having to sign up, here is a touching post about him & his death:

And this one on their main forum, where loads of people knew him. I believe some of the posters were even there:

I read the entire post, and it was really a wonderful eulogy, wasn't it? The world has also lost other talents who were really much too young to die, and whenever this happens, I think of the well-known passage from Donne that ends with "...never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."
