Not only is he a world class photographer, he is a world class individual. His warmth, caring and sharing nature exude from the moment you meet him. I for one could not ask for a better friend and mentor.
I second that Aggie. He's been nothing but supportive to me and Black & White Photography since we very first spoke. The mono world is lucky to have him around.
Tonight was the last night Les will be here (for this trip). I will be handing this thread over to EricR to report on the further adventures. Life around Les is interesting. I have enjoyed every minute of it. Not only is he a world class photographer, he is a world class individual. His warmth, caring and sharing nature exude from the moment you meet him. I for one could not ask for a better friend and mentor.
I too am looking forward to meeting Les this week when he arrives in Calgary. I must say, he's in for a bit of a shock regarding the temperature, especially today.
The forecast high is -16C, which is roughy 4F.
Good thing scotch doesn't freeze until around -200C, or -130F :lol: It may be cold here right now, but I don't think we're going to reach -200C!
I met Les last year, just for dinner and good conversation. His parting words to me were "It's all 'bout giving..." I keep that thought with me all the time now. His life is all about giving, and those who have the opportunity to meet him will learn of life and photography, music and love of life. He has a lot to give, just listen and learn.
