Wendy and guys, thanks for the solidarity. I am glad to reconfirm we are souls of a kind.
The most pleasurable 'assignement' I ever took was when my professor of Econometrics at Wharton, Dr. Lawrence Klein (later a Nobel Prize winner) agreed to my volunteering to be his photographer at his birthday at home and at a previous working session on the Mexican economy forecasting model we were building at the University of Pennsylvania.
I took my faithful Nikkomat (A Nikkormat bought in Japan) and the most luminous lens I had, a 50mm f/1.4, no flash, Tri-X film pushed to ISO 800. We were always talking to each other when I shot so I would not be impertinent, first on the business at hand, then on even more friendly subjects at the party, but eventually he got used to see me talking through the lens -so to speak- .
Years later when we met at a conference in Puerto Vallarta, celebrating his Nobel Prize, I asked him if he remembered me as one of his favorite students and he answered: "I remember you as my favorite photographer, my wife has your pictures all over our home".
Sadly enough I gave him both the pictures and the negatives, but remember the ocassion with great pride, following basic rules of courtesy ...... and every frame I shot still resides in my very hard disk in my head.
Have a great time
