Tribute To My Team

Post by minniev » Sat Nov 11, 2017 11:53 pm

I don't do many pictures of people, so I thought I'd share these informal snaps I did yesterday. Taken at sundown. Used a little fill light on Anthony and James but the variegated light was a challenge.

Meet the core team who've been working on my reclaimed house for over a year. They know and love every inch of it and will always be a part of it.

James, the contractor/lead of the outfit, only hires family so if the work ethic isn't what he expects, he can discuss it with their mama and things will improve quickly. James is 6'7'' and weighs 330 lbs so he seldom has to do this. He understands the spirit of the house, and has worked hard to reclaim it.

Anthony, James's nephew, the youngest of the trio, is the detail man. He can put anything together, even that stuff with the instructions that came out of a bad version of Google Translate.

Thomas, James's older brother, is the cheerleader and all around fun guy. He wanted his picture made in front of the front door.

What a super idea and a cool tribute, Minnie. As always, your articulate, rich writing skills enhance our appreciation of the story you're presenting. I hope you give them the link to this topic!

Minnie, you have served them all well. The size of James isn't the only thing that he means business when it comes to expectations of work ethics. The firm expression he has is a sure sign of "don't mess with me". I would say based on the description of the three you have provided, it takes multiple personalities to have success in their line of work and it shows. The before and after photos of the house is proof.

Minnie, Thanks for sharing your private place and your colleagues. Noticed the tilt on #3; and heard the call from the rocking chair. All good. Matt
