David Shooting Macro - Photograph by Pelle Haldin - Misery Mountain, Valley Forge National Historical Park, Pennsylvania - August 10, 2008On this day in 2008, my friend Pelle invited me to go to Valley Forge National Park for a photo field trip. While I was shooting close-ups on the forest floor, Pelle took this rare photograph of me in action. Notice the off-camera flash in my hand?

Today is the 44th anniversary of the infamous Miami trial of Jim Morrison. I testified at his trial, as his first defense witness, after photographing the concert in 1969. You can see more photographs and read the story of my unusual experience here. There is even a transcript of my testimony and a video of a VH1 interview.
