Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Hawaii 1974
"The four of us were in Neil's house that he had rented on the beach there in Hawaii. We had been working on an album that was going to be called Human Highway. It had fabulous songs in it which later appeared on David's record and Stephen's records. The last day we were there, I realized that we didn't have any image of that moment. I also thought we might need an album cover, so I borrowed Stephen's Hasselblad, because I wanted it to be a big format. I worked out the exposure in my mind. I set it down in the sand, looked through the viewfinder, composed the picture, had the boys go into the picture, and I knew where I would be standing. I had my friend Harry Harris, who was the builder of my house in San Francisco, press the trigger. There was only one shot."
