Jim Marshall Passes

Sad news in the photo world, Jim Marshall passed away. His photos are legendary and in a league of their own. I have a friend who works in the SF police department and she told me her encounter with Marshall. She said she was working at the station one day when one of her officers came and told her that someone was there to see her. She walked out and there was Jim Marshall. He had a copy of one of his books that he had signed and he gave it to her. He told her it was a token for the help she had given him. Funny thing is, she didn't remember him or helping him! Of course she told me this and showed me the signed book and asked me, "Have you ever heard of this photographer?"
