There are some predictable and some unpredictable choices here. All have been great by my estimation so far.

Besides the obvious (TBR knows what I mean):

Roald Dahl
Ansel Adams
Arthur Miller
C.S. Lewis

Not historical on an enormous scale, but an impact has been made nevertheless.

Finally, I would love to sit in on therapy sessions with Hitler. Some humor intended here, but really - his psych evaluations would be fascinating.

I believe meeting him would clear up the mystery. Not that I believe there is a mystery ...

"William Shakespeare"

The actor or the real author(s) that used him as their beard?

Ursiform says:
I've been thinking about this one for a while. Focusing on the question of who I would actually like to meet. Newton has come up, but I've read he was unpleasant and mean spirited. (Leibniz or Hooke, both of whom he disparaged in disputes over priority, would probably be more interesting to spend an evening with.) I love Bach's music, but he has been described as a Lutheran homebody, although apparently willing to party a bit. Anyway ...

Hammurabi
Socrates
Muhammad bin Musa al-Khwarizmi
Galileo Galilei
William Shakespeare
Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Teddy Roosevelt
George Ellery Hale
Albert Schweitzer
Fats Waller

I think you should pick on someone your own size.

If we're fist-a-cuffing, I would fight William Shatner.

I'd like to meet Gandhi and get into a fistfight with him. Same with Betty White.

Hendrix version's way better

Wont argue with that, but Dylan wrote it.

I was amazed that shooting into the setting sun like that did not create more artifacts across the lens

thanks for the badly needed advice and encouragement, always so nobly, patiently and kindly stated

that's what makes you a top reviewer

Hey... I wanna add Bob Dylan to my list too!

No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke

You had posted a small file so my corrections show some artifacts, but you can see that I increased the saturation, lowered the illumination and brought the contrast up quite a bit. It would look better with your high res file. I temporarily stuck them here:

aw, you're just saying that

at 12 megapixels in my trusty Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging (Body) I find I cannot enlarge too much (even to eight by ten) without going fuzzy but oh well

photoshop?
what's that?

I was just happy the newspaper photo editor took care of a very slight tilt

In reply to an earlier post on May 29, 2012 7:05:24 PM PDT
Nice job, Charles. Seriously, if you PhotoShopped just a little you could sell it as stock photography. It's really that good.
