clovis yates

Today's post began because of the photograph directly below. I absolutely love this picture -- the colors, his expression, his clothes and hat, the fact that he's sitting on a chair on the porch. It is so quintessentially Southern. I'm not sure why he's holding a liquid soap bottle though!

The man in these beautiful photos is Jonathan's great-grandfather Clovis Yates. I've written about him before here and here. Enjoy...
