Our physical resemblance to Lee Marvin since my move to Tucson in 2009

The brilliant athelete and artist who carries a long and sharp lens took these shots of me at Morgan's yrdsale. He called them his "Lee Marvins". Then I go these shots from my daughters Willa and Leah. The resemblance is astounding.

(Jim said he liked this one because of the lime) Me?

Willa who-just-got-hired for a cool job and Leah who is. They live 3 blocks apart in Brooklyn. How could a father b more proud

Leah in the middle and Ivy on her left. Leah and Ivy do everything together since they could crawl.

This morning 

My waking dream was : I was with Weegee aka Arthur Fellig and I was on assignment to do his portrait so I hung with him in seedy bars and on crowded 1940’s streets.
And when I asked him to pose, I’d, invariably, have tech problems with my Nikon and he would get (understandably) annoyed as I was delaying the rhythm of his day, as he was always moving, always pontificating, always talking to people on the street as though he knew them.
One time I wanted to do his profile in the fading green light (after all, it was a dream) playing off his ragged tweedy mid section and I missed the moment he gave me in profile.
I remember he told me ALL relationships with women were a negotiation. A deal was made. You gave her what she wanted and, in exchange, she gave you what you wanted. I woke up to the crack of Dawn and made myself type this in bed.

then I got up and made coffee and checked my txt messages and had gotten a morning txt from my friend Carl Hanni:

check out Daily Star. Doing crime scene photography. I could so see you doing that. Become Tucson's Weegee. Want to be a crime scene photographer? Cops are hiring five of them

wow syncronicity
