I was driving home from a photo shoot a couple nights ago and veered off Highway 61 to photograph sunset at Po' Monkey's. I've been wanting to make Mr. Seaberry's portrait outside his jukejoint for a long time. With a stroke of luck, he pulled up in his truck after I was already outside with my camera and tripod. I watched for a moment as he unloaded "drinks" from his truck and started carrying them up his stairs made of pallets. I shouted, "If I help you with the rest of those, will you let me take your portrait?" He said, "Sounds like a deal."
He even gave me a couple minutes to grab a light and umbrella from my trunk. Thanks Mr. Po' Monkey.
