i just heard the sad news that a furry friend i photographed in february 2007 has passed away.
ali, aptly named after “the greatest fighter of our time”, lived a fabulous 20 years. when i first met ali, a strikingly handsome abyssinian, he was 18 years old and frail from a recent illness. his family told me that after the afternoon we spent together he perked right up (i didn’t have the heart to tell them that i had spoiled him with the “good treats”) and went on to live a wonderful two more years. a fighter he was indeed.
float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, my friend.
