Farewell,Alan Waddell

The sad news came in an email this morning  that Alan Waddell has passed away at the age of 94.

I have been following his website for years.

It's called  Walk Sydney Streets

When Alan began walking Sydney,Australia suburbs for his health several years ago, and began documenting his walks in photographs, one of his sons came up with the idea of a website displaying the pictures, and people across the world began following Alan's walks.

It is a site that was always a delight to visit. Alan's zest for life, and his dry sense of humor, came across in the comments with the photos of his walks. Exploring Sydney 'with' Alan was one of the treasures of the Internet.

Farewell, Mr. Waddell, and Thank You.....you were a bright spot on the Internet that always made me smile, and you will be missed.

The email from his son,John, said that Alan's son, Graham, will be maintaining the website in his father's memory.

My deepest sympathy to his family.
