Wow! Just wow! Beautiful work!

Very nice Picture

Wow Kirk that is some nice stuff. Love the road series.

Saw that Ansel Adams show last week. My wife and I are going to see it again before it closes. We're in Boston but I'd venture to say it's worth the drive, even from Missouri.

I was glad to see the photo and write-up about Kirk Decker, a very nice guy.

Sorry to be so slow getting to this, but didn't want to miss posting a brief anecdote about him.

In 2017 I was in the process of getting rid of some equipment from my old studio. I advertised my obsolete but still very workable Speedotron 1600 (very large and heavy) power pack and head. Kirk responded, and we agreed that I would send him the strobe and head for the cost of shipping. Upon receipt and testing, if he thought it was of any value, he could send me whatever he felt it was worth. A few weeks later, he sent me an additional payment and I was happy for both of us!

About that time my latest book, "Backroads and Byways of Georgia" (Countryman Press, 2017), had just been released. I told him about it, and he bought a copy, then was kind enough to post a very nice review on amazon.com.

This piece has been a real discovery for me. Others have said "wow", and that is what I say too. Kirk Decker, a true photographer. Very assured work.
