Blues singer Earl Thomas came by the studio to get some portraits done. He came in after looking at the work on my web site, but when he got to the studio he remembered my work from the Arts Alive show that I did last year. We snuck outside in between rain showers to shoot a few pictures in the alley behind our studio. (Yes, some people like the character of Ferndale’s alleys. – Private joke for readers of this week’s Ferndale Enterprise.) Then we went back inside to shoot some more formal portraits. Earl is a blues singer and I traded a calendar for one of his CDs which has some real interesting reworkings of old and new blues songs.
