A continuing tribute to James Hockings (1947-2013), who used this blog to write about the impact of bladder cancer on his life and thoughts. A respected photographer-turned-writer, he lived with energy, focus, creativity, wit, and a commitment to helping others.
His memoir Zen Slaps from a Cancer Warrior was published in September (2017) (see “Books by James Hockings” in the Links menu.)
The post below is from carefree days soon after he met his future wife Karen.

LAST WEDDING OF A 48-YEAR CAREER
This is a photo from the last wedding of my 48 (48, yikes!) year career in photography. My sweet mentee, Megan, catching a football (raw photojouranism, not set up) in her wedding dress. What a way to go out! We hugged and creid as I left the wedding. Goodbye to Megan and a life in photography--both of us off to new adventures...!
