Anne Flowers

Super Bummed to learn of the passing of Anne Flowers. :( She was my first photography teacher at Del Mar and I was able to learn and grow my art in her class. She later hired me several times to guest lecture at the college.... I'm terribly sad but know she is in a better place.... Gonna go out and shoot one of my best photos to date today in memory of her.... Aloha Anne and thanks for EVERYTHING!! :(......... I'm actually wearing a photo patch on my sweatshirt that I shot and printed in her class years ago.. probably 1995.
