Ran into an old friend, Jim Witt at a wedding. Jim, Morry Gash, Wayne Peternel and I were young photographers working in camera stores in Milwaukee in the early 1980's.
Jim went on to a successful careeer at UPS and has two great boys. Morry is a great photographer and is the Wisconsin Photo Editor for The Associated Press, I keep plugging away as a Freelance Photographer. My friend and old roomate Wayne, I found out Saturday, died at age 42. The same age as his father.
This is a photograph of me at Camp Randall stadium ( UW v. Purdue ). The 300mm lens on my camera was lent to me by Jim, I got the press pass and stayed the night at Morry's apartment while he was away for the weekend in Washington, and the photo was taken by Wayne.
Please save your photographs.
( In Memory of Wayne Peternel this post will remain for one week )
