    Thanks to Art Liem for linking to this on Facebook. It's a good short read.

    Thanks for the link and what a wonderful letter with such sound advice. Do we know if his son ever became a photographer?

    That is precisely how I have felt for a long time - that I need to get away from the many cameras and get further into seeing, feeling, exploring, and instinct.
    The cameras are a huge distraction for me.

    Thank you!
