I've lost friend number two.... in two days... jeesh

Just heard that Hobart Brown passed on last night...

i took this pic at the 2004 races.... that was a special day as I got to drive him to the parts of the race that his limo couldn't.... I have 4 wheel drive hehe! We had a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he got to see parts of this race that he hadn't seen in years due to his failing health.... I saw him this year when I went back to Humboldt county for the race... the kids got to see him too... so for that i'm thankful... he has been ill for quite some time so i'm glad he is no longer in pain.

He was a fantastic artist...... here's some links for anyone interested... and click the link to view album to see kinetic pics i've loaded over time..... i will probably now finally process the shots from the 2007 race.... as many of you know i didn't do that this year because the weekend of the race was the weekend that my life went wicked weird and i had to leave woodland in a rush BUT met Jeff in the process and WOW now i'm married to him WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE... so it's all good...... everything is as it is supposed to be!

Ellin I see has already set up his memorial on her site.... Ellin is the new owner of the race and my dear friend that got me back into photography.... She told me of his passing today. It's a LOT her doing that I picked my camera back up after almost 20 years and so in a way it's her doing that i'm here ;-) .... in a round about sorta way... i love how the world spins and brings people in and out of our lives for reasons big and small..........
