It was Kaity who first gave him his “legend” title. I liked it so much, I bought him a shirt that has “legend” printed on the front. I sort of designed it, though the tee-shirt company provided all the pieces to create the shirt.
In processing Garry’s photographs, I did nothing but crop them and reduce the sizes. Otherwise, they are exactly as they came out of the camera. If you have to do portraits, shoot everything in the SHADE. The sun is no friend to portraits.
Garry gets a lot of audition offers from Boston Casting, a local company. They recruit actors for commercials and sometimes extras and small parts for movie roles being shot in the area. They don’t cast big stars. Hollywood agents pick them. Some movies use a lot of “extras.” These days, “extras” are called “background players,” but they are still “extras.”
It’s not that Garry is expecting to be discovered and suddenly become a Hollywood star, but I think he gets a bit itchy and would like to do something he enjoys. He’s such a huge movie fan so even an itty bitty part would be kinda cool. So far, he’s been in three movies, but never made it to the big screen. I was in one of them. I joined him on the cutting room floor.
These are the pictures I took yesterday. It was very sunny. Too sunny, so I shot pictures of him only in the shade. I also did something I never did before because Garry was still trying to look young-ER. This time, having turned 80 in April, he decided it was time to look his age. He looks pretty good for his age, too.
Maybe a hearing aid company will pick him to represent them? He’s the perfect candidate.
Your opinions are welcome. Actually, I’d love to get some opinions.
