Happy Holidays!

Happy Hollidays! I've been sitting on this image for 9 whole months LOL...If this doesn't put you in the holiday spirit, well then you're screwed;) This is the masterful blues musician Pat Thomas, one of my all time favorites in the delta. When I made this image of him it was mid March. I'm an advertising photographer and was on a project nearby so I decided to pop in at his apartment in Leland unannounced. it was about 10:30a and when the door swung open, this was his look~ the hat, the shirt, the #bud & smoking a #marb red, he was all color coordinated & in the holiday spirit;) He's such a character and a good man & a dream subject for a lifestyle photographer / on location photographer, especially while on my own i.e. no hair & makeup, assistant etc.!
