Ed Asner

Not to compare turkeys, but I was reminded of this portrait of Ed Asner that I recently put on my site. It's from an LA episode of Dinner for Five from a few years ago. I love it, but am sure that some people do not. Probably Ed himself does not like the angle or point of view. A lot of people do not like to see their true portraits, but rather idealized versions of themselves. An interesting line for me to walk as a photographer.

Scott, this is a great photo. Talk about catching someone as they are. That's why I still love black & white photography. I'm also a big fan of Ed's, so thanks for sharing this photo.
