Shroud of Lubbock


This is a portrait I took of Jimmie Dale Gilmore in 1998 in Palo Alto, in the green room of the old Spangenberg Auditorium at Gunn High.
It’s not very good.
It’s like the Shroud of Turin. You have to be looking for Jimmie Dale to see him.
On the same roll, maybe the next frame or exposure, taken by an unknown photographer is a wonderful group portrait of Jimmie Dale, myself and Robyn Israel of the Weekly. We look like a million bucks, each. Or three million bucks split three ways.
