Yesterday I learned of the death of Dave Anderson on December 10. Dave was a retired horticulturist from Park Seed Company in Greenwood. He was also a Flickr photographer, posting pictures of his adopted hometown of Greenville, rural South Carolina, and many shots of the beautiful flowers with which he worked daily. Dave posted under the name of “sisudave,” and also maintained a blog entitled “Old Man’s Ramblings.”
I never met Dave in person. However, he was one of my very first contacts on Flickr, and always left kind comments on my photos. Though we never met in real life, I still consider him a friend.
There have been many tributes to Dave’s work posted on various blogs and and on Flickr. Probably, the best clearinghouse for Dave’s tributes is the collection of comments left on the last photo he posted on Flickr.
