Auda Abu Tayi was Shaikh of the Howeitat clan of the Bedouin Arabs.

Simon Bolivar - Simon Bolivar, the liberator of South America was drawn on the program MacPaint.

At a computer conference in the early eighties the speaker was talking about the evolution of "the mouse" and the man sitting next to me , Bill Gates, mumbled, "sotto voce," "You can't draw with it. I pulled this out of my notebook and slid it in front of him. He thought for a moment, slid the drawing back, and said referring to the mouse, "you can't sign a check with it."

There is no moral to the story.

Thump gunner 101st Airborne - In Vietnam I photographed the 101st Airborne (Screaming Eagles) 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team engaging an enemy unit during operation Lamar Plain. Some soldiers still carried on the WWII tradition of designating the brigades with the suits of playing cards.

This M79 grenadier provided cover as I attacked forward with my camera. This watercolor is a recent exploration of the memory.
