Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Have only now read about Eric's passing Helen.. my deepest sympathy and condolences. So sad to lose your soulmate.

But what good times you had. You will never lose those memories, nor the wonderful photos each of you took inspired by the other. Thank you for sharing them. I hope those memories give you strength to carry on in your new life, a different life for sure, but I'm sure Eric would have wanted nothing but the best for you. Take care.

Warmest regards,

Helen, you have my deepest sympathy and thanks Lynn, you have managed to put my own feelings into words. They were each lucky to find their soulmate and to share part of the journey down the road of life.

Helen

I am immeasurably sorry for your loss.

I am also uplifted that you found such love, connection, and hope in your life partner. These are enduring even after life itself resigns.

My warmest wishes.

My heartfelt condolences Helen.

I hope you have people around you who give you a hug and listen if you want to talk.
Or just be with you and have a cup of tea and say nothing if word don't come.
Life does just go on, although you can't really imagine how for the time being.

Keep on posting here and also keep on shooting once you are able to focus again on your next stage in life.

Eric is just ahead of the curve. Ahead of you and ahead of all of us. It's good that the suffering for him is over and not endless but finally loosing battle is going on and on. My best friend died about a year ago, about 4 weeks after diagnosis of late stage liver cancer. His family and friends just had time to say goodbye and a final birthday party with everyone.


Be grateful of the time you shared together and loved each other like in this picture.


Eric and I in love... I was 17, my hair dyed black and Eric still baby faced at 33 by Helen Hill, on Flickr

I'm so sorry for your (and our) loss, Helen. My heart is just breaking.

If there's one good thing, it's seeing Eric's amazing legacy of work and the wonderful example he set for how to live a life to its fullest.

All my love, Helen.
