1997 GA Williams, a retired firefighter from NYC had taken the "BLACK
CHERUB" photo in front of a church in Northampton,
MA. The photo had been seen by Kaolin, a medium, who was convinced
the photograph indicated he was in need of urgent heart care. Mr.
Williams saw his physician and requested several tests so he could
be certain he was in good health. The results of those tests indicated
that his Aortic Valve was 7 cm dilated so he was taken to a hospital
and operated on several days later.
While recovering from open heart surgery George began to take photographs
of cloud formations. The photographs on this site were taken by
him. When he takes a photograph he does not see what we see once
the film has been developed. He gets a "feeling" and takes
the shot. The most common question we have been asked is what kind
of camera does he use? He uses many kinds of cameras from newly
bought cameras to disposable and even second-hand cameras. The cost
or year of the camera is irrelevant. For the most part 35mm is the
most common feature among them.
