Thomas lived down the street from me in Meridian, MS. His address was the same as mine but ended with lane. Mine ended with circle. Needless to say we got each others mail all the time. It's how we met and how this photoshoot occured. I had him sitting at the kitchen table. It was all natural light coming in from the glass patio door.
