Central States News: The Passing of a Lincoln NE Shutterbug

I'd be a very wealthy man if I had a dollar for every photo- slide and frame of video I've taken over the past 40 years or so.

Photography- to me- was just a casual hobby (along with music- the study of weather- etc.) but I took the endeavor seriously as a visual documentation of history- be it personal or general.


The LINCOLN (NE) JOURNAL-STAR tells of the passing of  Dick Blomgren who was Lincoln's 'visual documentator' for many years.


The accompanying photo- taken by Mr. Blomgren in the mid to late 1950's- is courtesy of both "JMJ Inspirations" and The J-S- and shows a young musician named Johnny Cash along with an unidentified store clerk and the owner of a Lincoln department store.
