requiem for Marty by fotokultur requiem for Marty by fotokultur
I grew up with Marty. A child prodigy trained in classical violin, but as a teenager he was the state bluegrass fiddle champion. We headed to Nashville once in my old truck, but got caught in a blizzard in Indiana. We stayed at a cheep hotel and kept supplied with food and liquor for a week through his fiddle playing in bars. We never got to Nashville. The last I saw Marty was in Minneapolis. He looked sick and talked excessively of Jesus and salads. He wasn't playing anymore... He died in an institution.

This is for my friend, Marty...

As everyone else said:

Stunning contrasts; the beauty is nearly unreal. It does look far more like a pen-and-ink drawing than a photo, especially in thumbnails. Beautiful.

Wonderful picture. I love the whole bare tree thing, and the sky is wonderful, I read one of the comments and it said that it looks like something out of a Dark Horse comic, and it totally does, but looks better than any pen or pencil can draw. Great eye for the photo.
