Photographer Appreciation Month

(Google Image)

By Terry Orr

As far back as I can remember – I have been attracted to photographs, images, paintings and other forms of catching a moment in time. Little did I know back in grade school that this interest would be common link for both my professional and personal life!  One of my favorite pastimes today is surfing the Internet – looking at specific and general Blog and Web Sites that contain these priceless pieces of art.

 In 1960, my Dad married June (our second step-mother) who was an artist in her own right and her father – Vernon was a practicing minister, farmer, journeyman carpenter, engaging story-teller, a World War 1 photographer veteran and all around wonderful person to know and be around.  It wasn't until after I had joined the Navy that I learned about his efforts during his war – taking photos by leaning out of plans and hot air balloons. A few years later – I learned that he had kept current on photos/images being taken by man and unmanned vehicles and various space platforms.  Sadly, he passed before I was able to bring him to Washington, DC for special meeting on where we were and going in the imagery business.

The details of this black and white photograph are simply amazing.
