Good morning from Space City USA. For dk-studio and myself it was another great week photographing in Sweet Home Alabama.

Two things of considerable note took place last week, both of which are dear to my heart and a true loss for our generation. In the music world we lost the incomparable Soul and R&B singer Etta James best known for her hit, “At Last”. In the photography world, the one name that was synonymous with photography and so much a part of our generation, Kodak, filed for Chapter 11. Both will be missed.

Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of spending time with a dear friend, Pam Lindley Jarrett, whom I met many years ago when she was an aide to Senator Shelby. Throughout the years we have kept in touch and she never ceases to amaze me with her “current projects” She is one of those rare individuals who never meets a stranger. Her current project is publishing an inspirational book she co-authored with a group of women, relating their views and life experiences. Pam asked if I would be willing to be involved and just like being asked by the godfather, how could I say No. Off I went to spend the weekend at Smith Lake, where Pam resides, to meet up with these 9 special ladies and help put the finishing visual touch to their thoughts. To say the least, it was a very inspirational time meeting them and way too much fun photographing them. Kudos to all the ladies for putting up with me.

I must say that the view of Smith Lake from Pam’s residence was spectacular and on one very “crisp” morning I was up early enough to catch this image, a fisherman alone with his thoughts in search of the prime fishing spot.  In that moment, if was as if the lake’s bend was in pure harmony with his movements. ENJOY!!
