A portrait of my good friend Joe Paredes, taken a couple of years before his death, while we were camping in Uvas Canyon County Park. I was struck by the fascinating patterns on his face made by sunlight through his hat.
This image is also included in a new Gallery Exhibit titled PORTRAITS featuring photographs of friends, family, and acquaintances.
