Dan “the man” Rodriguez passed on April 12, 2019. We lost our near & dear friend, photog extraordinaire to cancer. For those who have attended Mad Swirl Open Mic in the past 13+ years, you have surely been caught in the act by Dan…

Thru his thousands of open mic photos captured & generously shared by “the man” on Mad Swirl‘s Flickr page:


…on the his featured Mad Swirl Gallery page:


…and in his final words to his deadly mistress:


May you rest in peace, Dan. May your heavenly camera always have film & the angels be as good of subjects as we Mad ones tried to be thru the years…


EF 1 — Dan Rodriguez
