Surfer

June 15, 1988

If Mel Melcon is to be congratulated for capturing the lone surfer, in his Salvador Dali-like photograph (Metro, May 24), then the editors are to be congratulated for running the splendid and serene piece of photo journalism.

In the world of sensational, and rightfully so, photos on nearly every page, in a society running from Eastern to Western cultures with every kind of swift, action-packed, Wall Street pacing, Indy 500 roaring, bomb-dropping, parade-routing hoopla that anyone can imagine, Melcon's photo of Mike Kramer, alone, contemplative of the Pacific Ocean, severe and yet serene, gave me pause for appreciation.
