I'm for one.

I'm only getting one because

I want it to "wear" and show age.

If I had more than one they would

look new all the time.

Ray gets to age normally, as in life.

I LOVED that man.

Aw, jeez . . . .stumbled on this thread after a long time away.  Left the salt for one mile pavement fun, but think of it often.

I remember Seldom, his bride and Chinese buffet in Price. and Sparky helping me get dumb one night in Durango.  Mostly though, Ray comes to mind.  We were having an email conversation one morning when I typed "Dear Rat," because the t is close to the y. His email came back "Hey, I like that!" and I apologized profusely.  "No, can I use it?" and he became Ray the Rat.  But let me tell you, out of all the photographers I ever met (myself being a photographer since Viet Nam) Ray was the kindest of all. We miss him because he was a wonderful person, a great photog, and a hard working son of a gun. Godspeed Ray, may the light always be right!
