Photo Gallery: Thanks, Gordie


On the first really cold day of autumn, I was driving around Florence looking for a feature photo opportunity for the Gazette — frustrated and annoyed that no one was out. Determined to get a good picture I pulled over, took a deep breath and wondered, “What would Gordon Daniels do?” Those of you who know Gordon will understand this question. For those who don’t, I’ll try to explain: Gordon, who retired last year after working at the Gazette for over four decades, knew how to find the best photos, even when nothing immediately presented itself. With that ingenuity in mind, 
I pulled into Look Park, thinking the folks there must be up to something with tree lights, trains or Santa in preparation for the holiday season. Though I had to coax people into letting me take their pictures I got a great one for the daily paper, and found this one as well. I guess after 
working with Gordie for 22 years, some of his stick-to-itiveness rubbed off on me, and for that I am thankful.
