My dear friend Leo Reese was from Omaha, where he was born in 1941. His younger years were very happy. I always admired his ability to get so enthusiastic about little things, like woke up in the morning during winter and the trees and grass was cover with frost and the sun was shining. He would immediately took his camera and make pictures. Of course the view was astonishing but to catch the moment that was not as easy as I would say. Leo was a great photographer. It was actually by coincidence when he started with this hobby. Once we were together to see one outside exposition and one couple wanted to take a picture so Leo said he would do it though it was maybe his sixth time he held the “thing”. Well if you want to be good at something, you have to practice. And Leo was good at it.
He will be always in our thoughts.
