Sorry to all of those that I've dropped off the face of the world...Life's been a bit crazy. As many of you know I was taking care of my mother and her battle with cancer. The Holiday's were quite hard for mom had a series of
seizures back Oct. 11, which landed her in the hospital till Oct. 31. Then from there she was in a medical care center while dealing with some infections that was the cause. They had to do surgery on her brain for a sinus infection had caused the seizures.
After many months of battling she said to me New Year's Eve, 2pm, that she was tired of this and didn't want the pain any more. So I had to make the hard call and had them start giving Morphine. If any of you know, once you go that route it's just a matter of days. Well she passed away Jan. 2, 2013.
Just had a memorial celebration for her last Sat. with all of her friends (and many of mine that knew mom). it was a nice time and I'm now trying to get back into the rest of life and things.
CAworkshops I had to take a break from for a while. Some of you were there at the Hangout in Oct. that +Margie Decker
helped out on, I was able to attend while at the hospital.
This photo of mom was back in 1990, when I had just returned from a week long travel to New York showing my portfolio to magazines: TIme, NewsWeek, Life, SI, etc... I had got a couple of assignments from that travel, she had just picked me up at the airport, tells me there's this summer/pool party at some friends of hers and that she brought a suit for me...Not knowing anyone at the party I did what I normally do, grab my cameras. This was shot with: Canon F1, 200mm 2.8, on Kodachrome 64 (film). I'd have guess the exposure was something like: 250th F4 most likely from the lighting situation.
RIP mom: 6.16.1941 - 1.2.2013
