There once was a man named Wes
And I seem to have forgotten the rest
But I know in my heart he was best
In his uni with metals on chest
Was he a soldier…not really…
More like an actor, my deary
I heard once he joined the navy
But perhaps that was rumor, just maybe
Wes with his camera was often
Seen by the water just walkin’
Snapping away without worries
For a man from the past never hurries
This morning I was half asleep at 6:30 am wondering if I should get up and see the sunrise or stay in bed like the lazy bum that I am. Then this popped into my head. I’m not entirely sure where it came from…but I think my half alert self was thinking of all the people that I know and how I wish I could remember all their stories well enough to write them down one day. Then I thought of Wes, who is a friend from Flickr. We met once at an airshow and became quick friends. I like to think of him as a Time Traveler just like me. He shoots primarily in film and he has a set of recreated vintage photographs that really do look authentic! Anyway I suppose my sleepy brain went into Dr. Seuss mode and once the first few lines popped into my head I figured I might as well get up and jot it down somewhere.
