Jamie Foxx Day Terrell, Texas Sept 26, 2009

I will have more pictures to share in the next few days. It was fun.

Jamie entered on a red carpet and gave high fives all the way down it.

Tricia got an interview with Jamie Foxx prior to his coming to town, read it here. Tricia also covered today's event for the Tribune, read her story here. Jamie spoke about being on the cover of the paper when growing up. I will have that clip online tomorrow.

Texas Governor Rick Perry was on hand. He was introduced first and took the stage while Jamie was coming down the red carpet. Here is Gov. Perry is taking a picture of the crowd with his phone. Seems like the new thing is taking pictures from the stage with your phones. I thought it was kinda funny. You will have to click to enlarge the picture to see it.

It's nice to be a big star, but still remember your hometown. Camera phones are quick and dirty if you don't have a real camera available. You caught the Mayor at just the right moment.

Yep, Jim, I think it's funny, strange, not funny, ha, ha, to see the governor taking a photo of the crowd. I'm looking forward to the rest of the story.

This is my knid of photography. When the press and the mag guys get the standard shots, it's the crowd that capture the real atmosphere. You just get better each time I look.
