THE COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, WASHINGTON – I travelled out here to catch up with a close friend from the Marine Corps, Frank Blakemore, who is pictured on my Biography standing next to a 1953 Dodge Cranbrook. This was an important trip for me. I was struck by how much we have in common, despite taking very different paths in life: Frank stayed in the Marine Corps, had a series of interesting to spectacular postings, and ended up retiring a second time from FedEx where he had a senior logistics position. And we both married well. Frank showed my around his part of the world today, so here you go with my Leica Monchrom and 50mm Leica Summicron Asph. lens.
