Langston Rogers / by Bill Frakes

Thanks for your skill, kindness and professionalism Langston!  I'm gonna miss you mightily in the office.

The good news is now we can spend more time at the Ajax.

John Ed Bradley wrote a book called The Best There Ever Was --which is terrific by the way--and when I saw the title I thought he was writing about Langston.

But John Ed is an LSU guy so sadly his brilliant book is about something entirely different, but the title could be on Langston's biography.

Usually I write about photography in this space, and in a way this post is too.

For a whole bunch of years Langston has been a great friend to those of us who've worked with him. His knowledge and easy going we will get it done style have helped me make images with an economy of motion.
