To Lizbeth, We All Remember Her Well!

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 12, 2006

Dear Editor,
    Re: 25th anniversary photos ["An Austin Chronicle," Sept. 8]: When Martha [Grenon] asked to photograph Lizbeth and me, I couldn't understand why. She said she specialized in photographing famous people before they became famous.
    Naturally I thought of that when I lobbied my publisher to put one of those photos on the dust jacket of Travels With Lizbeth. Also, it was only one of three or four photos made of me contemporary with the events in the book, and the only one whose photographer I could still locate. I must admit, however, it was not my favorite shot. My favorite was the tongue shot, which Martha took in the same session.
    No one, save our companion, ever seemed to appreciate the tongue shot. But it was the best picture ever made of Lizbeth, at least to me.
