Lone ranger

I met Leonard Keller while I was out and about photographing in the city of Elgin on May 2. Leonard is 85 years young and works as a ranger at the Wing Park, keeping the pace going for the players on the course. “I’ve been working here for three years,” said Leonard. “I mostly do it for the free golf and cart.”

There were several photographers for the Elgin 1440 project already on the course when I arrived. I’m hoping that I’m the only one who thought to get a picture of the lone gentleman sitting by the first tee.

I bet he had some stories to tell. You know, we are letting an entire generation of oral history go to Jesus without writing their words. I am glad we have his picture.

I'm glad I got the picture and the opportunity to chat with him for a few minutes (and I know he enjoyed it as well).

Thanks for surfing by!
