R.I.P. Clarence Clemons

I had the privledge and honor of meeting and photographing Clarence Clemons in 2009. He was a gentle giant...soft spoken, good humored, and truly enjoyed meeting his fans. He was always smiling and loved to hear the stories the people told him regarding the first time they saw him in concert or hearing him on their first Bruce album/CD.

His sax solos touched my soul, especially the one on Jungleland. I'd close my eyes and let the emotions take over. Even today, his solo still has the same effect on me. He was amazing. He was gifted.

You will be missed, Clarence. May you rest now.

There is an old, abandoned house down the street where I live that I pass once in a while. It takes on a different face, mask, persona during the different seasons. In the Spring and Summer months, the House disappears into a grave of lush green foliage...vines, branches, leaves, and grass make the coffin for this once majestic structure, full of life and memories. In the Fall and Winter, the House awakens out of its lush grave, and stands as a Ghost of the Past, a reminder to everyone that sooner or later, we all surrender to nature...It takes back what we have taken, by force or by other means. For me, the House holds a mystery - questions that I may never find the answers to - Who were you? What memories would you share with me, if you could? Why have the people, who you once sheltered and protected, suddenly leave you, alone and unprotected? Do you hate those who left you behind? Are you sad that they had to or were forced to leave? What would you say to them?

For me, photography is a way to capture some of these mysteries. A way to somehow give these abandoned objects some of their dignity and respect back to them by showing the world, those who are looking, their beauty, their souls, their mystery.
