Re: Ronnie left a wonderful legacy...
In reply to Jack Frazier, May 11, 2011


I'm at work now, having just read the sad, but not unexpected news.

Ronnie was of course an inspiration to me, and I had frequently thought, "If I ever get down to Louisiana again, Ronnie Gaubert is the one person I'd love to meet".

I hope that his family considers maintaining his pbase site (to which I've referred numerous photographers seeking inspiration) as part of sharing his legacy.

Every once in awhile, I get a shot or two that reminds me of Ronnie (not as good, but I have a role model on what I'd like to eventually be able to capture, and I'm thankful for that)....:

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR ,TC-14 EII
1/500s f/3.2 at 280.0mm iso200

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR
1/3200s f/4.5 at 500.0mm iso800

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR ,TC-14E-II

Nikon D2h ,Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S VR
1/250s f/7.1 at 550.0mm iso200

What a loss.....
