Life's give and take

Life has as we all know it’s pluses and minuses. One of the pluses is the wisdom that comes from getting older and having a laugh over the silly things we did as kids that we now know were really stupid. As one get’s older one of the BIG minuses is the passing of friends. That’s not as easy to get over.

I was saddened to receive an email from Jim Clark about the passing of Tom Vezo this week. I knew Tom well back in the 90’s, the film days and shot with him on a number of occasions at some memorable locations. His big smile on those cold mornings at Bosque just after lift off are hard to forget. He was out hiking with his wife when life caught up with him, doing what I’m sure he enjoyed.

Luckily for all of us, he left behind his passion and love in his photographs and words. Tom also was passionate about the preservation of his home in AZ. You can learn more about Tom visiting his website or those things folks are writing about him. But you can learn about Tom best through his photography. I can only wish Tom continued great shooting!
