In memory of Dick Hibbert (1933-2010), I am posting selections from his art. He painted in oil, was an avid photographer, did watercolors, and sketched in pencil, ink, and charcoal. You can send me email by addressing it to my first name at mydruthers.com. --Chris

This was taken at one of the top five parks in Japan around 1969. We had been in the park for several hours and RTH was trying to get photos of these kids playing on the equipment. The teachers kept telling the kids "Don't stare at the foreigners." Finally RTH made a big production of putting away his camera gear but kept the camera around his neck under his coat. As we left they all ran down the path to wave goodbye...

I don't remember the persimmon trees in Japan, but I do remember that persimmons were common in Japanese folk tales, playing about the same role as apples in western stories.

This photo was taken around 1956 in Tokyo. JLH has it hanging in her apartment. RTH and his (unidentified) shipmate were arranging for a photo album for their ship. Next to the man, a hibachi with the teapot is visible.

This is the Kintai Bridge, in Iwakuni, Japan. RTH took many different pictures of this bridge. When I received the set of scans that included this photo, this one was sideways. It took a little while to identify the subject.
