This is Ed


This is Ed.

I photographed him last summer on a hot sunny day where every one else was wearing shorts, there was Ed in a "too big" blazer and neatly pressed pants. He was wearing a traditional "Salt-n-Pepper" hat always at a jaunty angle.

Ed usually had a slight smirk of a smile like he was about to tell you a joke.

He told me once in a raspy gravely voice: "I don't smoke but I likes me beer"


On a sad note, a friend told me he thought that Ed died this past winter.

Often the greatest characters disappear without any fanfare, not even a whisper.

I am glad I met you Ed.
