Every once in awhile I get to shoot something oddball like this. The event was the book release party for Clarence Clemon's book "Big Man - Real Life and Tall Tales" at The Hard Rock Cafe in New York City on 11/06/09. Fun event and I think I got a few interesting shoots that night.

As always, comments and critique are appreciated.

1. A couple of Ford Modeling agency gals that I'm still not sure why they were there...but they were cute.

Hey Tony check this out... (My ol' track coach in HS, coached Carl Lewis and the US Olympic Track team at the 84 games in LA.) Carl started singing soon after... :-)

Thank you, Tim. That is one of the best compliments a photojournalist can hear. :D

I did expect a wise-ass comment about The Belz from you though. You're slipping!
