I wrote a lot about my friend Jack in Screen Saver, and, by derivation, in Saigon 1967.
Among his many recommending talents was taking pictures - photography.
He was the unofficial photographer of Central Catholic High School when we were in attendance there.
He adopted a color Polaroid camera early and took amazing pictures with it.
We used to take it on our hunting trips.
Somewhere there is a perfect picture of a just shot mallard duck.
It was good then; I cringe now.
How sad; but that was how it was then.
Here are a few of his pictures.
Actually, I took this one; that's Jack waving; we were on Owyhee reservoir in eastern Oregon.
We caught quite a large number of Croppies, for which Owyhee is famous.
Notice that it looks a lot like Mars.
This was taken of me by Jack with a black and white Polaroid in Nha Bey Vietnam where Jack flew round the clock Huey missions; I was on a day off from HQ War in Vietnam Saigon; Jack wanted me to see what the war was like in reality and how stupid all of it was; I was allowed to participate in "The Passing of Out" a ceremony Jack and his cubicle mate had invented; I have never ceased being glad that I had had that opportunity to celebrate a stupid war.
