The Teddy Bear, The Ice Cream Cone & The Heart-Shaped PillowSaturday, May 30, 2015
The pay hasn’t always been good but if I had a chance to start all over again I would still marry my Canadian Rosemary in Mexico, have two daughters there and then drive our VW Beetle to Vancouver and settle here.I would meet up with Malcolm Parry and Rick Staehling at Vancouver Magazine and become yet again a magazine photographer.
With magazines and newspapers moribund I look out my living room window into my rose garden and I think that in spite of it all it has been a good life this one of the photographer.
Consider my visit to Salem’s condo in West Vancouver some years ago. When I got there she dispatched me to get one soft vanilla ice cream cone. Not two (if I thought we would enjoy them on her veranda after some photographs), no I had to buy one.
And here are the results, ample proof that had I been a plumber I would have been wealthy but a tad more bored.
