Back in front of the camera

What are the chances I would be on assignment photographing the same person with a 26-year wait between shoots? I was on assignment to photograph the Tracy Cougars John Harvey on a story about football and concussions and after I was done with the pictures he asked me if attended Fresno State in 1986? I said I did and he told me that he had a picture, framed no less, that I took of him when he was attending a Fresno area high school.

He had been at the university preparing for the Fresno Relays track meet and I took a photo of him running the hurdles. 26 years ago, so many pictures and people since then but I find myself taking Harvey’s photo again for a paper. What are the chances!
