There was grace and dignity for every soul in Dad’s world. Look at how this lady in her pretty dress is a bright spot in the plainness around her. Dad would have told you that the real beauty in this picture is the old woman’s spirit.

The moment he turned his camera on you, you became an important part of his world. His photographs weren’t just images, they were remembrances of the people who had touched his life.

More than once he photographed some farmer or rancher in his travels, and later journeyed back hundreds of miles to see them again and give them a print. Sometimes he found them, other times they had moved onward, never to be found again.
