[September 10, 2010, Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire]

I met Warren at JPG more than a year ago. I was first drawn to his open outdoor scenes, and since then have come to admire everything he shoots.

We learned that we have much in common. We’re both veterans, for example, and Warren was in Viet Nam during the Tet Offensive (1968).

You can imagine my surprise when Warren told me that he had lived in Sunapee, New Hampshire for many years. That is where I spent the summer of ’63 washing dishes at the Anchorage Grill. What a coincidence!

Since I visit New England one or two times a year, we decided we would try to meet up on my next trip. Warren, who lives in Chester, Vermont, suggested Lake Sunapee.

Warren had a large Nikon and several lenses with him. I enjoyed seeing the artist at work!

Most of the boats had been pulled from the water, but we captured a few. Warren’s shirt blended right in!

I don’t think I have ever met a nicer guy than Warren Mangione. We had a great time and we are going to do it again.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

    You're given a new meaning to the phrase "you really get around" LOL glad you had a nice visit.... I'm afraid that if i had such beautiful places to shoot, i would never go to work or do anything except lug around my camera and become a photography bum...

    Thanks so much, Dick for breakfast and taking time to meet up with me! I totally enjoyed our conversation and photoshoot. Remember how I almost fell in when that dock I am standing on started rocking?! LOL That was funny! I am really not comfy in front of the camera. hahaha

    Warren, I do indeed remember the "header" you almost took off the dock -- you and about 5 grand worth of camera equipment. Maybe you will succeed next time! Good pic of you, by the way! Cheers . . .

    Wonderful picture of Warren..and the background is beautiful...The lighting is very nice also. Glad you two met each other....Oh yes, thank you for the comment of the sign that we found with your full name on it, Richard..That was a total surprise to see that on the wall even though we knew it wasn't in memory of you and that you are very much alive enjoying the good life...

    So great to see a shot of Warren. I'm familiar with both Chester, Vermont and Sunapee. When you're a New England skier, you become very familiar with New Hampshire and Vermont.

    Mangione I tried to contact a couple of times but to no avail, of course, that there
    is something goes wrong. Mangione is definitely the name of Italian origin and had seemed like a good idea to contact, to know the origin and the Italian region of origin. From the picture seems a nice person and company, however, just the lifetime warranty that Richard from him to have all my support. Ciao Warren
