About this photo: My sister Paulette took this photo of me in Germany many years ago. The haircut was achieved with a Swiss Army knife while living in Paris. I Photoshopped the heck out it to create the old film "look" (the original is film). This photo has rocked me through the roughest times and is a statement to my inner self....the one that still wants to photograph the world I see and follow my passion. As I transition to an older version of me, I think that haircut will re-appear. My passion remains the same as it was the day this photo was taken way back in 1980 something.
