I once bumped into Steve Jobs and Jonathan Ive walking out the front door at the Apple Headquarters in Cupertino.
Almost literally bumped into them. I had my head buried in a text message on my iPhone.
I looked up. Mr. Ive held the door open for me as I passed through on the way in before I really knew what was up. He and Jobs passed through on the way out just behind me. I was mysteriously compelled by something and I snapped a photo of their backs as they walked away since my phone was in my hand.
“Why did I just do that?” I thought to myself embarrassingly, even though no one noticed. “Don’t be such fool, Chase…”
And just then one of his famous one-liners lept into my head.
“Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
And so I will.
Thanks for everything Steve. You made your dent in the universe — and then some. RIP.
***UPdate: I didn’t originally post the image because I didn’t think it was relevant, but so many requests from you have changed my mind. It’s not an image whose quality I’m proud of, but that wasn’t the point. It’s my only shot of Steve. Again, RIP…Kuo Design…101 magazine covers with Steve Jobs. Go to Kuo to see the rest…]
Thank you for sharing your experience, and the reality that every moment is a moment to be treasured.
One of the last photos of a Greatest person, and he’s walking away…
more than a million pf iphone5 pre-orders now.
Missed opportunity … Steve loved photography. It was a regular at Keeble & Shuchat in Palo Alto.
Agh… I hate typos 🙂
This is so awesome Chase. I’d do the same exact thing. That sudden moment of excitement; I’m sure you’ll remember that forever.
That’s absolutely true and who to say this but you chase. YOU are already doing this since day one and i just wanted to say, we all appreciate it. You are the smartest artist i’ve ever seen.
Always a fan chase, always 😀
