An Admirable Guy

, Friday, March 14, 2008

I had the privilege of attending a lecture by Jim Brandenburg last night. I’ve admired his photographs for years, but was even more impressed by seeing him in person. He showed a lot of his work, including many unpublished photographs. He showed a lot of photos from Blue Mounds State Park, where I've been wanting to go rock climbing. He has given away land for conservation. He’s the kind of guy who lets his passions take him to great places. He’s a genuine good guy, and I’m adding him to my official hero list. You can read more about the lecture here.

    I also meant to say that Brandenburg has a really cool house in Ely. I understood him to say that he's giving it away for use as an educational facility. That seemed to be his intent with it all along. He has already given away some of his land in Ely. I don't know if he's still going to live in the house or not.
