Ray Harryhausen passed away today. Another of the people that influenced so much of what I do is gone.
I grew up watching, or should I say sneaking to the television, late at night to watch his stop motion masterpieces.
There are few famous people that I would like to meet but Mr Harryhausen was at or near the top of the list.
I think it would be fitting to watch one of his classics this evening in tribute to someone I spent waaaaaaay too many hours trying
emulate as a preteen/teen snapping frame after frame on my Sankyo Super 8 !
Good bye and thank you for the magic.
