Terry in the Arbuckles by L Hartley

He led me through an unbelievably gorgeous mountain scene, and I slid and wobbled, holding my Hasselblad and a digital camera. Like a gentleman cowboy, he held my cameras, and helped me climb. Here, he rested, bemused expression, as I whined and worried I would fall over the cliff’s edge! To reach this spot where he sits here, he and my husband physcially hauled my ass over an enormous rock, asuring me all the while, they would NOT let me die! Every step was worth the effort. Terry was a dream to photograph. He is an Oklahoma gentleman cowboy, and all that that entails.

This is film work, unaltered in any way, only scanned.

    • Well done – thank goodness you didn’t hurt the Hasselblad……..I mean yourself :-)
  • It’s OK – I ALSO recognize what is more costly, and it IS the Hasselblad!!!!!!

    You made the whole excursion fun. I really appreciate how you & Jake made me feel so comfortable. Like I said just before crawling up the mountain & over that boulder, “Face your fears” & you both helped me face mine. Thank you so much & look forward to working with a true lady & professional. Love Ya!

  • Yep – those words, “Face your fear” got me up there, and this is the result. I Thank YOU, actually, T!
