This week I learned that a mentor and friend @johnrunningphotographer passed after complications from a brain tumor. "Running" was someone who loved people and had a certain unique style, you can tell its a Running shot from the first glance - the way he used light, contrast and the extreme connections he had with his subjects is clear as the glow in their eyes. He had a love of the cowboy lifestyle and I am posting this pic of my dear friend @m_attredd to honor Running's love of capturing the unique beauty in the world. Rest well old friend I look forward to continuing to study your archives and carry on the tradition of walking somewhat aimlessly, yet with intention in the downtown streets of Flagstaff. With love and respect Rest In Peace old friend, you will be missed.
