From the original post of this image, 07/17/2004, at Photopoints, a photographic communtity to which Lou belonged:
""Summertime, and the livin' was easy..."
This one is all about a feeling, and so I dedicate it to Lou Verruto, who recently passed away...
Lou was a warm friend to many here who had the honor of knowing him from other photo site families during the last several years...
He had great talent and great knowledge, which he freely shared with all, and an even greater heart surrounded by an incredible sense of humor...
Lou was all about light, and with his imagery he had an uncanny power to transform the simplest of subjects into pure magic...
He will be missed, but we can be sure that he is now bathed in the most radiant of Light, smiling upon us all...
A special thanks to Anna K. for her beautiful tribute, in imagery and in words..."
"One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky..."
From Rui Pahla's comment on the image:
"I have to add these Lou Verruto words:
"I am facinated by light...how it shapes, molds, defines and clarifies.
The subject matter is irrelevant...it's the light I am trying to capture with my camera...always the light" Lou Verruto
