28/01/16 - Connor Cummings R.I.P.
< on 1/30/2016 6:55 PM >

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.

This is the thing that scares me about getting into rooftops. One wrong move is all it takes. Horrible.
