Thematic Photographic–Shooting Strangers from Afar

Snowboarder catching air this January.

The poor guy whose job it is to clean up the mess visitors leave on the beach on Antelope Island.

Mom and daughter (I’m making an assumption) headed back from the Great Salt Lake shore.

Swimmers attempting to swim in the Great Salt Lake.  This is not an easy task since the lake can be up to 3 times as salty as the ocean.  This not only makes one a lot more buoyant, but the salt can sting every orifice and cut or scratch on the body.  This can be a benefit since it can cure any infected cut or scratch.  The other problem is that the lake is 33’ deep at it’s deepest, so to get in enough water to even try real swimming, you have to walk quite a ways out.

December 4, 1967 to August 11, 2014.

It’s been over 20 years since I saw him last, but for about 7 years he was a big part of my life.
He was the sysop of The Motel West BBS, and through it he brought together an incredibly eclectic group of people who became close friends.
This group came together right after my business went belly-up, and through the insanity that bred in this group, helped me keep my sanity during my mom’s declining health and after her death.
Thanks to Facebook and a current friend of his, I found out that Mark Alder passed away August 11 of this year.  His obituary doesn’t mention what happened, and since the only contact I’ve had with him for a while has been through Facebook, I have no idea whether this was sudden, an accident or expected.
Mark, rest in peace and thanks for the laughs.
