I recently purchased this beautiful photo of Leonard on eBay, and I just love it. He’s not posing or smiling with a fan or group, just signing a autograph. But you can see the gentle joy in his face and just a hint of a smile as he signs. I’ve seen other pictures of this particular event and it looks like he was really enjoying himself here, but there’s something about this image that just has quiet dignity to it.. He really cared for his fans and never took them for granted. Weren’t we lucky? Photo by Peter Warrack.
And by the way, if anyone knows where and when this was taken, please comment below. I”m guessing it was during his Vincent tour.

I wonder where Leonard was when this funny one was taken! No doubt in the ’70s and a local channel was airing In Search Of… It must be odd to see a huge head of yourself in public, but looks like Leonard enjoyed it!
How many here watched In Search Of… back in the day or since. Do you think it aged well? I”m looking forward to the new reboot of the show with (appropriately) Zachary Quinto as host! I’m sure Leonard would approve!
In remembrance of Leonard on his birthday this year, I donated a copy of Fascinating: The Life of Leonard Nimoy by Richard Michelson to my local elementary school library! I happened to donate it on Leonard’s actual birth date; March 26th, which made it extra special. The librarians were very pleased with this beautiful book with its loving illustrations by Edel Rodriguez. It tells about young Leonard grew up in Boston, discovering his ambitions to be an actor and photographer, and how his faith influenced a very important part of Vulcan heritage.
I signed the book to the students and urged them to follow their dreams as Leonard did, and of course to Live Long, and Prosper! I hope the kids will enjoy it, and that Leonard’s legacy will live on with them ❤ You can buy a copy here.
The librarian was delighted!
My inscription to the kids.
I hope the kids will be inspired by Leonard’s story. (me with the book)
Hey, even bad guys need a day off! I had fun manipulating this candid picture of Leonard during his run as King Arthur in Camelot (1973) into a relaxed Mirror Spock! Maybe he’s off picnicking with evil Nurse Chapel... 🙂
Note: I added Kelinda (Barbara Bouchet) who looks even more like Celeste Yarnall! (Martha)
Here’s my most recent list of Star Trek look-alikes. Can you think of any more? You can see Parts I and II here and here. 🙂
