You can tell a lot about Jim Bates, a Seattle Times photographer who died of cancer Sunday at 63, just by looking at a photo he took of himself outside the Rose Bowl in Pasadena in 2001.

In the shot, which Mr. Bates posted on his Facebook page, he’s smiling. He’s working. He’s outdoors. He’s wearing a Seattle Times ball cap. And he’s out on a big story — the Huskies at the Rose Bowl.
