What SOG neglected to say is that this picture was taken in July, and that is Raoul standing next to him.
But seriously, that is a cool photo and yes we all feel a kinship to Ralphie or his brother. My own Mother used to bundle me up in winter like that at a very early age, and we lived in central California. I suppose Chicago never left her blood. Any time she felt cold she would throw another layer on me. Like Ralphie said, "He looked like a tic about to burst."
Great photos SOG, I'm really enjoying what you're sharing here. Thanks.
What's really cool for me is this photo reminded me of the bomber hat that I wore into the ground around 2nd & 3rd grade winters. It was one of my favorites.
"I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use - silence, exile, and cunning." - James Joyce
