A continuing tribute to James Hockings (1947-2013), who came to use this blog to write about the impact of bladder cancer on his life and thoughts.
A respected photographer-turned-writer, he lived his last months as he'd lived the rest of his life – with energy, focus, creativity, wit, and a commitment to help others.
Before he died, he commissioned a book of his writing on his scrap with cancer, including posts that will occasionally reappear here.

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...!
