Wow...what a following. I am in awe of both the regal eagle and your awed audience of viewers. Your photos ARE indeed good enough for NATGEO. I read my first issue of NatGeo at a paper drive back in the early 50s. I was so entranced by the publication that I took one out of the drive and put it in my notebook to read at a later time, after school. Well, to make a l o n g s t o r y speed up a bit.............I was summoned to the Principal's office and reprimanded for taking property that did not belong to me. It was a caustic experience for a 4th grade boy and I felt like hell, like a thief or even worse after his verbal tongue-lashing. Yes, I love NatGeo, for sure. And your marvelous photos certainly SHOULD be in this marvelous national magazine that bespeaks only EXCELLENCE. ROB
- HUFFSTUTTER'S PHOTO ESSAYS
- My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
