Happy Birthday to my dear friend BRIAN BEKER ‘Dog in the Clouds’

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I know that my dear friend Brian Beker does not care about celebrating birthdays but today is his. These are old polaroids dating back to 1990 in Paris. Brian is at the upper right and left.

Other friends represented here  are from top left going downward and ending with bottom left:

Giacomo Veronese, when he asked for my hand in marriage,  and from a dinner chez moi: Take Hirakawa, Maria de Medeiros, Arnold Barkus, Gustavo Ten Hoever and John Rynski at the bottom right. I am happy to say that all of the above are still in my life.
