I know I shared this photo a few years back, but cleaning my office recently, I found the album it came from. Alan Karlin sent me two small books many years ago. They're his shots from WPPI 2004, and this one is a classic. I'm not sure I've ever seen a group shot jam-packed with more industry legends.

And on that note, I can't think of a better way to wrap up 2020 than a sprint down Memory Lane. We're all tired of the pandemic, wearing masks, using words like "hunkering down" and "social distancing," but none of those things are in your rearview mirror! So, wrap up the year and look back to a time when life was simpler and extraordinary - we just didn't know how special it was at the time.
And one last time in 2020 sharing Jodi Picoult's quote about photographs - BECAUSE THERE IS NO BETTER WAY TO DESCRIBE THE PICTURE ABOVE...
This is what I like about photographs. They're proof that once,
even if just for a heartbeat, everything was perfect.
Happy New Year - here's to 2021 and having faith that moments like Alan Karlin captured in 2004 will soon return! Stay safe, healthy, and thank you for your support and friendship through another year in imaging!
