I’m going old school here, and it’s for a sad reason. I recently had a hard drive crash upon recovery I’m finding images that I’ve completely forgotten, I mean COMPLETELY! One such image was of the International Poet Naomi Shihab Nye. I had a chance to meet her at the Twig Book Shop’s reading of her poetry book titled Honeybee.
I recalled that I the image of her made it to her wikipedia page… one of the coolest moments for me as a photographer. It can be found here. Well I did a net search to find it, and the image queued up, so I clicked it and found that it was on a blog. I contacted them detailing how excited I was that someone used it, and then asked nicely for credit. They obliged. And now I’m sharing. Enjoy and go pick up a poetry book of Naomi’s sometime, or sign up for Sivan Butler-Rotholz‘s email.
Here’s the image and corresponding caption.
