This morning, I learned of a great loss to the photoblog community. My friend, Lynn Rockwell, lost her battle with cancer this weekend. Lynn was a true inspiration to me from the earliest days of MRB, where her comments and encouragement made me realize that this project was worthwhile. Lynn's photoblog, Focus on Photography and her personal blog here documented her daily life up in Canada. Lynn posted her last picture on January 28th. Bob Foss wrote an eloquent tribute to Lynn on One of Lynn's goals during treatment was to come and visit Chicago. This posting is dedicated to her. Thanks, Lynn, for everything.

I like your self am shocked at the loss of Lynn, like yourself she was also an inspiration, she will be greatly missed by the photoblogging community.

What a sad loss for the photography world and world in general! She sounds like such a neat person!
What a beautiful tribute to her!

My first thought was: W.O.W, what an amazingly unusual shot. And then I read the text about Lynn and I am deeply touched.
