Cleve Eaton


Welcome to Birmingham Through My Lens. Today is the first post and I hope you will stop by often.This blog was previously Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo but on January 2, after almost 8 years as a City Daily Photo blog I made the decision to stop in order to give myself time to pursue new directions in my photography.

I've been waiting to find just the right image for DAY 1, and last night at the grand reopening of the historic 102 year old Lyric Theatre, the curtain opened to this. Cleve Eaton was just one of the many performers in the talent packed vaudeville show.  Cleve has played with Ramsey Lewis and Count Basie and to quote the program, "He has become a consummate bassist, producer, composer, publisher, arranger and head of his own recording company."

Great jazz shot. In early days the theater was really blue of the smoke but today it must be something else. I hope its not dust from the last years.

Congratulations. And what a great start to your new venture. I love the "through my lens" title anyway. This is terrific.

OMG. A triangle of pure art, in performance and represented. I must say that horizontal bar in the foreground makes this perfect.
