I’m reblogging myself (and this picture, again ;)… and I’ll do it again) because I wanted to make a little comment. I know this particular post only has one hundred something reblogs, but I’ve seen others with over 5,000 etc. (music posts, too!) that are using this photo. This is my favorite photo of him for a number of reasons.
1. Because I took it.
2. I’m hardly a photographer, but I managed to capture what I feel is this man in a nutshell. Light. Joy. A smile to match no other. Pure love. I just love the way the light isn’t only shining upon him… it’s shining through him.
3. Cory loved it. And I am glee-ful, that with all that he has given me, I could give him that.
4. That so many other people enjoy and love Cory in this photo and remember him for the light that he was for us all.
I’m very proud of this photo. Again, I’m far from a photographer, and I get a great happiness at seeing it around tumblr, and people enjoying it. But also for this reason, if you post or see it posted, please remember where it came from and credit me - as the photo itself truly means so much to me. RIP, Cory.
