  1. I am worried about the increasing self portraiture, Rob. I hope it does not mean you intend to leave this planet? Would be a real shame to lose such a great photographer and man well before his time. &>)


  2. Kind of you to be concerned, Roel:-) but I’m not about to drop off the twig for some time; but since this blog IS about this particular photographer’s life…and is also a way of keeping in touch with family and friends (like yourself), I like to show them I’m still standing.

    Love seeing you in your story and wonderful road shots Rob.
