I am very proud to have Jurek Holzer as a contributor to 591 Photography. Now retired but still active, he worked a long time for one of Sweden's leading newspapers. Born in 1947 which means we are almost of the same generation. Still I was surprised to know that we both attended this concert in Stockholm. And yes, it was a million years ago.

We will miss you Leonard.
Mr Urbano

"With one hand on the hexagram and one hand on the girl 
I balance on a wishing well that all men call the world. 
We are so small between the stars, so large against the sky, 
and lost among the subway crowds I try to catch your eye."

Nice capture of the great Leonard who died just after the election of the small trump. A sign? A tragic sign?
