Amazing Grace: Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015

Happy 80th Birthday, Leonard Nimoy of #StarTrek! These photos I took 25 years ago of him in NYC

The anxiously anticipated day started off very exciting. I was with my good friend, Chase Graff, though at that time he went by the name Charlie and we were sitting on a sidewalk patiently waiting on this early June day. It was the fourth of June thirty-three years ago… the year was 1982. We were first in line for the long awaited sequel to Star Trek: The Motion Picture. In hindsight, it is hard to believe that it was less than three years that had passed since the original Star Trek movie then. We were there before the theater opened  for business that day waiting. When the puzzled manager came to the theater, he was surprised to find us there so early waiting. He asked what we were waiting for and we jokingly said Das Boot, which was the other film playing at this cinema at that time. Long waits didn’t bother us because we were able to talk about everything under the sun. Though on this day, I imagined the topic was mostly on Star Trek perhaps and the rumors surrounding this particular movie. There was this talk that the character Spock would die in this movie. This couldn’t be so, we thought. Spock was our favorite character, after all. What would Star Trek be without Mr. Spock?

Let the Wookiee Win! Chewie Gets His Own Movie

Peter Mayhew, the actor who plays Chewbacca (Chewie) in the Star Wars saga will be getting his own movie reports Hollywood Reporter. It's not a movie taking place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but rather one taking place some 36 or so years ago around the making of the original Star Wars film (A New Hope) released in 1977.

Happy 80th Birthday, Leonard Nimoy of #StarTrek! These photos I took 25 years ago of him in NYC

These photos of Leonard Nimoy were taken in 1986 at a convention in NYC with an analog SLR (put together here now using the Diptic by Peak Systems iOS app) and posted to Instagram. I wish the lighting was better. Oh well. By the way, Nimoy is a photographer himself too.
