This is William Taylor Lyles ( or to anyone who knows him, Bill). He's the sweetest man I will ever know, and any man I will ever meet will be compared to him.

We spend every holiday at our camp on Toledo Bend in West Louisiana. We were walking on the beach when I took this picture.

    This is a perfect portrait. This site is so strange...this should be favorited a thousand times already, but there is such a huge love of lo-fi here that a lot of amazing stuff goes underappreciated. I hope this gets voted up and appears in print. Cheers, Jay

    I love what you said..

    "He's the sweetest man I will ever know, and any man I will ever meet will be compared to him."

    There are very few people in the world like you. Who are capable of writing such a statement. (as sad as that sounds) What a magnificent photograph! I really enjoy it.
