When I made the decision to do this countdown series I remember telling myself that I would mostly post pictures with occasional videos. My goal was to just memorialize each day because in the back of my head, I knew 730 days meant 730 posts and to be quite honest, I wasn’t sure I was up to the task. I figured posting a picture a day would not be overly demanding and I would be able to honor G.O each day as he completed his service. It seems I am incapable of restraining myself when it comes to G.O. So whenever I come to a G.O One Shot day, I am reminded of my original plan and just smile. Best laid plans, right? My last One Shot picture was from The Black Pearl. I share another from that series today.
The lighting, the shadow, the glow are all balanced to perfection capturing G.O’s quiet radiance. He is on stage yet looks relaxed and full of calm with a gentle smile in his eyes. Luminous. Truly, there is no better word to describe him in these kind of photographic captures. Some people are simply born with a special light. Something inside that illuminates their very being. It is very captivating. When you meet people who possess this light, you want to surround and bathe yourself in it. It soothes while at the same time, excites. I have not met too many people who possess it, but when I met G.O, I knew he belonged to that club.
