  1. My photography is nowhere near the quality of yours, but your style kind of reminds me of my own. We shoot a lot of the same subject matter. I don’t have this book yet, but if you’ll bring a copy to class next week, I would love to buy one from you!

  2. Nice images, Bill. Every mom and pop business is like a very personal piece of art installation. I think you’ve captured it well because of you love of it.
