Lloyd Rees had not updated his photography site since his first post after he settled into an old dear's home so I got snoopy and discovered he is gone. His fine photos of Newfoundland you can find on my sidebar. His last one, that of a pair of jays outside his new window, the unfocused background, so typical of his magic island, still does not seem sad despite Lloyd's circumstances. Think he meant it that way. Those Newfs are some gutsy. I never knew Lloyd, just like I do not know most of you, but I liked him just the same. Like Steve Earle likes to say: see you on the other side, motherfucker.
