I awoke to Paul Simon on the radio this morning:
“When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school.
It’s a wonder
I can think at all . . . “
Somewhere along the way I found photography and then life began. I am grateful for all the teachers who came into my life and helped me on the journey. This is a picture of my high school photo teacher Norm Stewart—one of the best. And I’m the guy in the middle in the checked shirt staring in wonder at a print as it is pulled from the tray. To this day that wonder has never ceased . . .
A heartfelt thanks to the “legendary” Mr. Stewart.
P.S. I posted this previously on Facebook and many kind comments were left. I like this one in particular:
Thanks for your kind words Craig. As a young teacher just starting out in the late 60’s, I learned early not to get in the way of gifted students with heart, drive, vision and passion. You were among those and your success is evidence of that.
