forever young...




When Jerry White was forced to retire at the age of 70, he decided to go back to school and get his third master's degree, this time in education. He's been teaching math at a community college since. "You know Rod Stewart's song, 'Forever Young'? Well, that's my theme song," he told me over coffee. I met Jerry in Keene, NH after meeting with a wedding couple. He had time to kill, and I didn't have power, so we spent some time talking about life.

Katie...the last portrait is inspiring and arguably the best photo I've seen you post. Perfect blog entry!

Chris Barnes said...

beautiful shot! don't like the middle one contrast's with the third one too much. think it takes away from a viewers digestion of this man. we want to ask. who is he? what is he doing.. i don't know but he's a jolly ole chap

Katie,
I love this little series. He is gorgeous. Your photos are (as per usual) gorgeous. It's a great combo.

Emily Katelyn said...

Sounds like a quietly perfect afternoon.

Colter said...

He looks like a good coffee buddy. Third masters degree?? Whoah. I agree that the middle one is distracting when viewing the three of these as a whole. You are the master of portraits. I wish you could play croquet w/ me today!
