On the Stage

"Action JaxN" by Wes Aldridge

Another portrait I shot in an empty theatre of one of my best friends in Atlanta, Blake. We have known each other for many years and played in many bands together. A very good drummer, drinking buddy and overall a stellar comrade. We have been through the thick of it all, came out alive, and not with too many broken bones or spirits. We made that strange connection, that Bonnie and Clyde-do-or-die, stroke-it-to-the-end-and-let-it-roll kind of a moment. That's what we've got. And all you out there, may never find that! Ha, we are true ruffs in the broadest sense of the word.

And, here he is in all his beauty. Aviators and a strange pink coat. That is the way we will go out of this world one day too, boy-O. Strange and hard, no fear and kill the regrets. Turn off the lights and set the table, cause daddy is coming to dinner soon. Grrr...
