David Burnett (are you sick of him yet? I am not)


David Burnett's show is up at the Georgia Center and he's made his public talk ... and we're all better for it. Really, we are.

After picking him up in Atlanta, we stopped to shoot a 81-year-old World War II vet who jumped into Normandy in 1944. And in 1994. And again in 2004 ... the guy is a true paratrooper, sending us off with a "Blue Skies!" salutation. Mr. Burnett had his 1950s Speed Graphic for the shoot, with a 1925 lens mounted on it. (Built the same year as the vet.)

After his speech, he mingled with the masses and answered questions about his show, "Measures in Time," which will be on display through the end of April. You really should go see it.

Mark, thanks again for bringing David Burnett here. I am still amazed at how approachable he was, especially considering how great of a photographer he is. Am I the first comment?
