Dandy by Linda Sparks

This fellow was as dandified as one could get, but he had that quirky smirk that made me want to take him home. I didn’t, the rest of our group wouldn’t have approved.

The Rendezvous of the Gunfighters in Tombstone, AZ brought forth a whole new cast of characters over the weekend. Unfortunately, one had to work very hard at catching thought provoking and candid shots of these reenactors as most were very camera conscious and constantly struck “poses.” Diligence paid off.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
