Goodbye… my dear friend, Horst!, originally uploaded by *Gracie.

I had to take a longer than expected leave from Flickr and am just finding out that one of my dearest friends here, *hb19, passed away on May 12, 2010. Horst was one of my first contacts and a beloved member of this community.

One of the best things that happened to me on Flickr was stumbling upon Horst’s magical photo stream. He had an enthusiastic passion for capturing and creating the most unique images – the anticipation of each new post was consistently met with the satisfaction of yet another masterpiece.

He always had this uncanny ability of making everyone feel special and as if their images alone were the best photos ever taken. He never missed an opportunity to compliment others with his wonderful words of wisdom and humor, a real treasure for those of us on the receiving end.

My heartfelt condolences to Horst’s family and loved ones. Thanks so much for leaving his photo stream available so we can continue to enjoy the passion he shared through his photographs and commentary.

Goodbye, my sweet Horst.

A beautiful Memorial Site. has been set up by the family.
