    Thanks for the look and the listen. Jay's the real thing, and his images--portraits, landscapes and abstracts--take the viewer to the heart of the Southwest. Great photographer. Great man. Great friend.

    Once again Andy you have produced a most worthy 1-hour attention grabber! Kudos! How appropriate to have Jay’s photo (above) taken by Scott Baxter, (CreXpoCon.com collaborator, Friend Not Yet Met) an exceptional Cowboy Photo Archivist. It reveals the subject in such a pleasing BAXTER Photo Way! I enjoyed Jay's comments on his passion for haiku. I too enjoy the writing form. This little ditty wormed its way forth. Hope you find it enjoyable.
