And I love her

I’m off to do errands, but wanted to post something as we head into a lovely and warm Father’s Day weekend.

I’m fascinated by the 60s, especially photographs of the time and specifically ones that have to do with rock and roll.  What an incredible trip it would’ve been to tour with a band and photograph them along the way.

Linda McCartney, wife of Paul, was the ultimate traveling rock and roll photographer, but it’s her photographs of her family and children that I love the most.  She perfectly captured Paul with the kids – Mary, Stella and James – and their childhood playfulness.   Linda was a professional photographer, publishing “Linda McCartney’s Sixties: Portrait of an Era” as well as the first woman to have a photograph featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine (Eric Clapton) in 1968.

She and Paul were married for 30 years before losing her battle to breast cancer in 1998.  She was 56.
