breakfast with douglas kirkland

breakfast ever wonder what happens when two photographers sit down to have breakfast? well this morning i had breakfast with legendary photographer douglas kirkland and we had a lively conversation. douglas' passion for photography and zeal for life is so contagious. i have learned so much from him about living and about photography.

and of course even though it was breakfast ,we both had cameras with us. douglas had a pocket camera and i had my usual slr with the 50mm lens attached. we sat and talked for quite a while and throughout the conversation we were picking up each other's cameras and taking pics. on the left is a photo douglas took of me and on the right is one i took of him (click on the image for a larger view). this was yet another reminder to me to bring my camera with me wherever i go.
