With all the politicians and celebrities I shot in the heyday of magazine, perhaps the only time I ever recall being awed in the presence of a subject was the moment when Gordie Howe walked onto my set for a quick portrait with his favourite cup"Lord Stanley's"at the Hockey Hall of Fame, Toronto, for Sports Illustrated. With hands like grappling hooks attached to forearms like tree trunks, I felt like I was in the presence of a mythical Knight, the Jungian archetypal warrior. And he was beaming. When I looked past him the little boy he'd brushed past moments later was still gaping. It was a truly lovely moment.
