Thank you so much for your encouragement in what I do.  It really
means a lot that my ravings about "always take you camera with you:
are underlined by someone like you.  The interesting thing to me about
this series, was that I was trying to figure out how to break the ice,
and just ask him if I could shoot his picture.  It was only when I had
a hook; his name, that I had the courage to ask him instead of just
sniping.  Maybe I'm getting to the point I can do that.
