This is a picture of my friend Dick Deimel under the dark cloth and focusing his Wista 4x5 at the Ancient Spanish Monastery in North Miami, Fl. I met Dick about 3 years ago or so thru an ad he placed which asked to meet other photographers looking to get together and shoot. I answered and am glad I did as Dick is just a fine fellow to be out with and full of knowledge of the Miami area's, besides being very sociable, and was always willing to tell me stories about his days as a messenger in the Revolutionary War.

This particular day Dick and I were shooting at the Monastery on a Sunday morning, and as always the rains came in and we had to duck under the cover of the welcome center at the front of the property. I always like to help Dick if I can by placing arrows to help him know where to point his camera.
