About Jon

Jon, previously known on this blog as Joe, was the boyfriend of 2Summers. He died on December 19, 2011.

Jon taught me much of what I know about photography, and encouraged me to create 2Summers in the first place. Jon was the first person to show me Joburg, and to take me to many of the beautiful Joburg places that I write about in this blog.

Here are a few 2Summers posts about Jon/Joe:

    I’m sorry about your loss. I went to his website and was very moved by his photographs. My mom died when I was 6. She was a wonderful pianist. I started piano courses when I turned 18 and every time I play a song I feel her present in the notes. She kinda lives on in the music. Same with him and your photography. Sounds stupid but somewhere I read that dead people are only dead when we forgot about them. Greetings. A lovely blog you have!
