Hanging out with Mary Campbell is one of the great things about being back in Seattle; she is a wonderful person and a gifted photographer. We embarked on a little trip to Discovery Park this weekend as the sun set. She took some pictures.
I think all of the pictures of me on this website were taken by her at one time or another. But, surprise surprise, her talents extend beyond taking pictures of me. She brings her camera where’er she roams to capture the instant, resulting in photographs ranging from awe-inspiring land and seascapes to intimate portraits that embody her subject’s spirit. All of her pictures are instilled with a sense of adventure that arises not only from her subjects but from her very soul.
For your enjoyment, some recent photos from her tumblr blog:
Much love to the Soup.
Samuel, You probably do not remember me. I remember meeting you a long time ago. I happened on your website because I was writing to your mother via Facebook. I am married to your mother’s cousin, Harry Jenkins. I just read a few of the things in your blog. You write beautifully and made me feel like I had met you again. I am 75 years old and reading some of your writings touched me in ways I cannot describe. Thank you and I hope we meet again some day. Barbara Jenkins
Of course I remember you! We all ate at some steakhouse that is probably closed down now.
Thank you for the wonderful words. They mean a lot. I would love to see you again some day. If I remember correctly (and if you haven’t moved since our last meeting), you live in Colorado. I have some friends in Colorado that I’ve visited in the past. I’ll have to find you if I’m in the state again!
