I admit to taking more pictures of rocks and trees than I do people, but its people that really affect you the most. Take the one below, for instance. It's of my father, Joe Bourque. He was born in 1919, just in time for the Depression. He joined the Army Air Corps and served in the Pacific in WWII. He always loved outdoorsy stuff and did triathlons into his seventies. He slowed down considerably in his last years and was always okay with sitting for a portrait. He was an old-school slide rule engineer, and had some appreciation for mechanical cameras. The one that took the image below was a Mamiya C33 with a chrome 135mm lens. If this sounds like a memorial, it is, because he passed away just the other day. So, take the picture while you can!
