Sabu, his rescue dog, is his best friend. His scariest adventure occurred in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He and Sabu were rock scrambling up a mountain. Sabu couldn’t always follow Kenny, but he would sooner or later find his master. Kenny set up the tripod and camera to take the perfect sunset. No Sabu. He searched—to no avail. As the sun began to set, he knew he wouldn’t get the photo, but his Sabu was more important. Where was he? Kenny decided Sabu must have returned to the car and started down the mountain. Daylight was disappearing rapidly. At the last second, Kenny saw other climbers and guessed Sabu might be visiting them. You see, he’s a friendly Pit Bull. Kenny yelled and was relieved to see Sabu run toward him. When Sabu reached him, Kenny knelt down, hugged him, and cried. Wild animals, hanging cliffs, howling screams at midnight don’t scare him, but losing Sabu is his nightmare.

Kenny writes poetry to match the feeling of each photograph. He’s currently working on a limited coffee table book filled with his photos and poetry.

To take one of Kenny’s workshops, email him at Krlerose @ yahoo dot com. He provides workshops everywhere, and if the client has a desired location, he’ll arrange it—any state, but he’d like to help everyone with bluebonnet photos. He’d love to hear from you, but give him time. He may be on top of a mountain or on a frozen lake where there’s no Wi-Fi. You can find Kenny online at www.krlgallery.com and on Instagram @krl_photo, @mister airstream, and @the_sabu_way.
