I attended the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation’s annual awards event tonight at the Claude Moore Center downtown and took a bunch of photos, none of which is better than the one above of George Kegley.
George is an old (90) friend and colleague who has been the spearhead of the foundation for years (he even put me on the board at one point). He is also one of the best photo subjects I’ve ever had. I love the shot at the top, as well as the less stylistic one above.
George and I worked together at the old Roanoke Times in the days when a newspaper was just that. George was one of the best business reporters I ever knew.
