Welcome, George King

Yesterday, my cousin Paul and his wife Danielle gave birth to their first son. They've named him George, after our grandfather. Some of you know how much my grandfather influenced my life, and still does. In the middle of this uncertain world, I take heart in knowing that there is another George King in the family, and that he has an amazing life ahead of him. Welcome to the world, George. First drink at the Town Pump is on me. Someday.

The Last Days Of The Double Door Inn

As I photographed the last few nights of the Double Door Inn, as 2016 turned into 2017, I realized that the photos were becoming its own project. The story of the venue, which I would write again later in 2017, were one thing. The photos were telling their own story, which is now collected in The Last Days Of The Double Door Inn.

The familiar spaces and faces. All of the character that we knew so well. The music, and the good times. No need for words, it's all there. I intended to put this book together in 2018, but life got in the way, until life for most of us came to a halt earlier this year.

While it is strange for me to release this book in the middle of so much turmoil, perhaps it shouldn't be. For many of us, the Double Door was the place that the world needs more than ever. No lines, no division, just people, laughter, music and fun. We all could use our own Double Door Inn right now. Let us celebrate the past, and remember that a dream lives on, as long as there are those that are willing to dream of it.

Welcome back to the Double Door Inn.
