What the? I can only do two lines of cutline per pic? The young guys sitting while the old blokes stand are Mic Fairchild, Stu Ritchie (I think), Chris Archer, and Steve Bartlett. Pic by me. I pushed a button and made history. (2009, at Steve and Fran Bartlett's placce in Boulder)

"CAM-RONNN!!! You're kidding, right? Another photo?" "Layton, chill. It's a 125th of a second that you and I won't be drinking beer with Allen and Chris down at the Sink. You can live with that." "Okay, you're right."

Patrick Oliver poetically waxed:

"Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt... Layton
truly was at that order of greatness, a simple, humble, not-so-well-
educated, but brilliant spirit. Just look up at the sky at sunset and
imagine Layton's spirit filled the vast space of the world. He
touched people everywhere, came here for a few years, won our love,
and departed -- but not without leaving that spirit with us. Just
look up and into that infinite light and feel the expanse of
existence that was -- shall we remember at this moment -- inhabited
by one precious friend."

Toast to Layton the Great 'Un! Layton was one of a kind and we are fortunate to have been blessed by his life.

Most incredible page on ST right now, HANDS DOWN!

Wow Jan, you're getting hugged by the handsomest guy on the planet right there!

And he didn't even have to try, or have REI make-up specialists working him over before the shoot.

You both look amazing!

Cameron, those are such priceless pictures too!
