A surprise arrived this weekend. Linda Heinsohn has been a student of mine for a long time. And Chris and I have had the pleasure of meeting her (and her spouse, Hugh) in person (live and analog, versus online and digital).
So on Saturday, this package arrives. She's made a book of her photographs and sent me a copy, plus a very pretty heart-shaped note.
The book is beautifully done, on thick paper, the photos handsomely presented, with a translucent piece of vellum/plastic to protect the front and the back of the book.
A lot of the photographs are familiar to me as I've seen her posts on Facebook and Instagram, but there were a few surprises in there. All of them depict parts of her life in and around Portland, in her neighborhood, and include a few bittersweet photos of beloved pets.
Such a kind and thoughtful thing for her to do, but that's who she is.
Thank you, Linda, for sending me your book of photographs. I'm honored.
