I like this pic of me so much it gets a whole post – "Apple Love" by Rhonda Roman

Apple Love by Rhonda Roman
 So a few Saturday’s ago I was at the Davis Farmer’s Market and Steve Smit from Mt. Moriah Farm’s showed me this pic that a photographer had given him.  Steve is one of my favorite people anywhere.  I don’t know why really.  But I go to the Farmer’s Market many times just to see him/buy stuff from him.  He is funny, warm, interesting, social, etc.  And apparently a photographer caught one of our interactions from earlier this year.  

Fortunately, she put her name on the back of the picture and a little googling and I found her photo collection on flickr.  Her name is Rhonda Roman and I really like her collections there.  But in particular I love this picture she took of me and Steven and others at the Market.  It captures everything really about my interactions with Steve.  Thanks Rhonda.  A picture is worth way way more than 1000 words.

  1. Thanks for sharing that pic. My feelings are similar to Bill's – I enjoy your blog, loved your blog post about links to other people you hadn't noticed before, and here is a beautiful shot by a top-notch photographer that captures what this life is about!
