50 years and counting

I owe my career to the magical country of Haiti.  In my first year of college I went there for a one month academic project.  A professor generously loaned me his Pentax h3v camera with a 50mm lens.  I rolled my own 20 rolls of black and white tri-x film and set out exploring,  learning as much about the country, practicing my fractured French, finding myself in unusual places.   This was  in  April 1966 at the height of the Francois Duvalier regime.   Some of the images I will be posting and placing in a gallery soon.  Here is the first image taken at the Sans Souci palace of King Christophe near Cap Haitian.

    That’s great Jett. My church supports a school in Haiti, and we are always moved by the generous spirit and courage of the people. Will look forward to the other images. (And I hope you are doing well…. it’s been a looong time since we shared some fun times in DC.
