On Friday afternoon, Wolfgang, my best photography buddy passed away.
Wolfgang turned 80 years old and was diagnosed with multiple cancer last fall.

It was always interesting, educational and fun to go on a photo walk with him.

He will be missed

Your post is somewhat bittersweet. I lost a very close friend and mentor (photography, work and life) last October. He was 82 and had pancreatic cancer. He survived a complicated surgery, but passed from post-op complications a few weeks later. He was the person who originally turned me on to Nikon gear in the 90's, and kindly sold me much of his early Nikon F equipment. I still have the FTn and most of the lenses.

Klaus, I'm sorry you lost such a good, close friend. I know it's tremendously difficult. I hope you can take comfort in all of the great memories you had together.

Sorry to hear your bad new, but you have a lovely, happy portrait of your friend to remind you of happier times.
