In Kind Gratitude

Today's song is Midnight Confessions by The Grass Roots, released in 1968.

Last May, I received an email from Ryan Doan, who sent me the following message requesting permission to use some of my historic Yuma prison pictures.

Hello Donald Larson,

My name is Ryan Doan and I am the production associate with the creative team of Weird US. We are currently putting together our Weird Hauntings hardcover book which will join our series of Weird US books published by Sterling Publishing. You can see some of our current titles by visiting In our research on the internet we recently came across your photography at and would like to know if we could be granted permission to use some select shots for possible inclusion in our Weird Hauntings book.

If so, we were also wondering if it would be possible for you to email us larger resolution versions of the same photos. Of course, we would also include the respective photo credits in the finished book.

Should you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at your convenience. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.

Ryan Doan - Production Associate / Editor - Weird US

I agreed to their request and in return I recently received an autographed copy of the book, Weird Hauntings shown above, published by Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. One of my supplied pictures appears on page 300 and the credit for my photographic contribution is printed on page 318.

I have licensed many of my digital art creations and pictures over the past few years. Each time I am proud that someone asked me for permission and in return for that permission, they have credited me accordingly. My portfolio of references grows with every granted request.


I recently saw the new movie, Hollywoodland. It's a story about George Reeves, the actor who played the original Superman on TV in the early 1950's.

The movie explores the relationships Reeves got involved in and reveals part of his private life personality. This exploration primarily takes place through the private detective investigation shortly after Reeves' death. The private detective has some of his own revelations as he works the project and discovers more than he bargained for along the way.

I was one of eight people in the movie theater watching that movie and by far the youngest. I think the movie would mostly be appreciated by people my age or older who could personally relate to the 1950's and who watched the old Superman TV show.

No one will ever know the truth about how George Reeves really died. However, this movie helps explain what is like for a TV actor be one of the first in his field to be typecast and the devastating effects that had on him.
