    MUHAMMED ALI...1942-2016 I am thankful to have been part of the Champs life for a moment...having lunch at a hamburger joint in south central some 30 years ago. Before leaving I asked if I could get a picture with him and if he could sign my sweatshirt I dropped mustard on from my Hot dog. I never washed it so the signature would not wash off...I still have it tucked away in a drawer. Thank You Champ you will be missed!

    When my wife passed away it seemed like the World was crashing down on me...I didn't know what to do. I hadn't seen my friends or talked to them since I got married I was all alone. Depression can make you do some foolish things. For the next 2 years I ran from reality retiring as Chief Photographer and traveling with a band from Mexico and eventually finding my way on the Northshore of Hawaii. The past 5 years I realized I wasn't getting anywhere and my health was poor weighing in at 285...wow! Realizing my mistakes I made choices too help Chris with the group and be a better Person. So here I am trying to be who I once was...a caring individual who loved Photography and cared about others. Giving freely of myself to the community and the people like I use to...before she left. With The CHAMP passing I know this is my last stretch of road I will travel...I want to leave knowing I have given back in some way rather than just thinking of myself. I love LA Street Photography for bringing me back from my depression and I will be here for as long as this body will allow me...see you at the next Outing!

    I know what's it's like to fight your way back to life after a great loss. It took me over 3 years after the death of my daughter. On the outside I'm sure I seemed normal and that I was coping well but inside I was a devastated wreck (and still am sometimes). You may think you did foolish things but you did what you felt would help you cope with a horrendous loss. There's no right or wrong way down that path. One never stops grieving but there comes a place of acceptance. I, and so many others, are glad you found your way to the group and value your companionship, enthusiasm and sharing your love of photography. That's the life your wife would have wanted for you.

    Larry I have been out with a group just couple of times but I have felt your passion for photography and love of giving freely. I am honored to be mentored by a Chief Photographer. :) I am sorry for your loss. I know getting trough of all phases of the grief is a difficult process, but as Susan said, there is a place of acceptance. I hope this will be a place where you will find piece. I know your wife is watching and smiling for the person you are and things you are doing. Keep on rockin your camera and document our world trough your eyes. Your work is exceptional in my humble opinion. Peace, Light and Love
