That'll be him ... bit of a Konica fan from memory. He's in my orbit on Facebook on a Canadian page ... still pissing people off!
Frank Granovski is his name ... I think the site was called photo poo. Long gone now!
When a website has been around as long as RFF, there will be valued members who pass on… I would like to acknowledge and remember some of the RFF’ers who contributed to the culture of this site but who are no longer with us:
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some … I learned a huge amount from each of these gentlemen and am (maybe) a better photographer for what they taught me by comment or example.
I visited Al and pleaded with him to quit smoking. He was an aggressive pro-‘choice’/pro-smoker: Do you smoke? He fed me a lot of BS about his doctor being ‘confused’ about how healthy he was and a lot of other arguments. I explained lifetime risk, irrespective of obvious markers like blood pressure. Al also overlooked that his cannabis habit had probably caused his epilepsy rather than ‘kept it under control’. He smoked a lot of cannabis too. Then a few months after I visited he had a heart attack and died.One of the highlights here for me was Al Kaplan's presence while we had it. I can't believe it's been just under fourteen years since he passed away suddenly!
