Hi friends. While I don't think he was ever much of a poster, a young UER lurker and someone I was beginning to become friends with has passed away doing the thing he loved most: exploring.
Connor was climbing the roof of a Four Seasons in New York in an attempt to get a panoramic view of the city when he fell through a hole in the scaffolding and sadly lost his life. He was both from the town next to mine growing up and we ended up at the same college later on. I had only had a couple conversations with him about photography since then and I just found out the news this morning. I don't know his UER lurker but I know for a fact he was one, as it was something we had in common when we first met.
Here's Connor's last photo, while slightly morbid I find it poignant to share his last triumph with the world, especially UER. http://www.nydaily...-article-1.2481559
