I'm sad that I won't ever see John F. Rhodes spot on sports photographs & Jim Mahoney's daily metro look on life in the DMN again.But it's the young photographers I'm saddest for, who won't get the opportunity to work along side hardworking, ethical, funny guys like Jim & John.
A few years back, I ran into Jim Mahoney on an assignment. We flew in a hot air balloon over the cow pastures in Duncanville. After the ride, we received medals for our bravery. Above are a few outtakes from that very funny morning.
