I just got an email from David Chamness, the winner of the Lowell George photo contest I ran a while back. On Saturday, I sent him the first part of his prize - an original photo I took of Lowell in concert. David was kind enough to let me pick, which wasn't all that kind after all, because it was really tough to choose one I thought he might like. I didn't want to disappoint him. Anyway, since he is such a huge fan of Lowell, I finally decided on a shot where Lowell was looking into my camera. That way, whenever David feels the urge, he can have a little talk with Lowell. Eye to eye.
Enough of my blabbering. What I really want to share is the email David sent along with the picture I requested, of him with his new Lowell George photo:
Thank you for the picture, I love it. What a great shot! I will have to frame it and find a special place to hang it. I really do envy you for being there during that time, and for having such a great talent with a camera.
So you want a picture of a middle-aged software developer in return. Be careful what you ask for... ;-)
Thanks for winning, David. I couldn't be happier to have one of my Lowell George photographs hanging on your wall. And I love that Little Feat poster. How sadly sweet does Lowell look in that picture? BTW, whose guitar is that?
