Dinner with a legend: Sam Abell, Liz McCue and Ethan Richardson

Sam Abell and students Liz McCue and Ethan Richardson

Every so often in someone’s life, he or she has an “I’ll never forget this” moment.  For the students in this year’s Images of the West course, that moment lasted five days.  My mentor–both through images and tutoring–Sam Abell, the legendary National Geographic master photographer, journeyed with us to northwest Nebraska.  On the way home, we stopped at Huckleberry’s in Broken Bow, Nebraska, for a final meal together.  This image captures one of those last, warm conversations as students Liz McCue and Ethan Richardson bask in their own “I’ll never forget this.”

As a side note, Sam recognized Liz’s potential as a budding professional, and that is evidenced in this image; after all, most photographers I know eat with their cameras, too.
