About the Book
I had just about given up on shooting with Zinn when her name came up in a conversation with Mike at Cherrystone Photography. He had worked with her several times and said he felt she would be a GREAT fit for my work. Here is the email I sent the next day.
I was talking with Mike at Cherrystone yesterday, he felt I should definitely try to shoot with you (he really thinks your FABULOUS! my word). So when you are up this way I hope we can work something out and shoot together. In any case I think your work is BEAUTIFUL!
All the best.
She replied that I made her day and she would let me know when she returned to the east coast. That was February 2009.
True to her word Zinn emailed me in May 2010 she would me home for a month or so in June - July and maybe we could get to shoot (finally).

Writing stuff for things like this is like having root canal for me. I seem to ramble, and without someone to keep me on track I just run amok. You might say I “lack focus.” I guess that's because I see things differently. I believe I learned to re-focus my vision during one particular family car trip when I was a kid. My dad looked out the window and said, “That’s an odd place to hang a bicycle.” Well, I looked all over the place – high, low, left, right, near, and far – and I couldn't find that bicycle anywhere!

To this day (50+ years later) I look around and think, "That’s an odd place to shoot a nude.” I have re-worded my dad’s observation a bit from the original. Some people call my type of photography "Guerrilla Photography" because we "Shoot and run!" However, at my age it's more like, "Shoot and walk away slowly – then go back and get the ca
