From the photo-essay in developement, 'Outlaw In Texas', on
This image is of Blue, when he is given the news that a biker brother has died from a motorcycle accident, something that happens far too often. I was sitting off to the side as they were discussing it and shot seven images of his grief. This is one of them.
