Tennessee Williams, the Pulitzer Prize winning legendary author of works that include A Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and A Streetcar Named Desire, was born on this day March 26th 1911 and I was reminded of him when looking through my archive of literary figures I have been lucky enough to photograph. Quite by chance I found myself in Key West, Florida on an unrelated story I had been commissioned to shoot for a British newspaper in the summer of 1982 less than one year since adopting New York and America as my new home. The British journalist I was working with suggested that we go to Ernest Hemingway’s favourite drinking haunt ‘Sloppy Joe’s’ and after making some enquiries we were directed to another bar that was said to be where Tennessee Williams often hung out. Sure enough the information was valid and we came across an inebriated Williams sunning himself on a rock with a large cocktail in hand. After some more drinks Williams agreed to let me take his picture and one thing led to another and we followed him to his Bahamian style cottage on Duncan Street where he had created an artist’s compound and guest cottage with swimming pool. During the course of the afternoon and after some further consumption of alcohol whilst showing us his paintings he announced that he wanted to swim and after watching him for a while he stopped and I bent down to take this picture of him with a swim cap. This is probably one of the last pictures ever taken of the playwright who famously said, “If the writing is honest it cannot be separated from the man who wrote it.” Less than a year later he was to choke to death in a New York hotel room.

stewartweir : Lovely portrait Derek .. Archives are just full of gems that ripen far better with time. @hudsonpix
hudsonpix : @ina_ritar Thank you.
hudsonpix : @stewartweir Thanks mate. Archives! Isn't that the truth. Always a joy to go back and find the goodies 😊
stewartweir : @hudsonpix And the bloody things continue to hide images that got better than the original chosen pic.. Quite often I've found.. It's like they wore invisibility cloaks back then!

Finally I started swimming again. A few years ago I used to swim four times a week about 2 hours on each day. When I was about 16 years old I stopped because I was also voluntarily working as a coach there. Now I'm back and I must say that I got into it again really fast and it's now again lots of fun to me. πŸ™ŒπŸŠ Habe endlich wieder mit Schwimmen angefangen. Vor ein paar Jahren habe ich noch 4 mal die Woche jeweils zwei Stunden lang trainiert. Mit 16 habe ich dann angefangen eine Gruppe zu trainieren und selber allmählich aufgehört. Jetzt habe ich wieder angefangen und ich muss sagen dass es mir sehr viel Spaß macht. πŸ™ŒπŸŠ #swimming#swim#swimsuit#badeanzug#goggles#bathingcap#speedo#endurance#futura#new#stuff#newin#badekappe#schwimmen#kaylaitsines#thekaylamovement#kaylasarmy#bbg#bbggermany#bbggirls#fitness#fitfam#fitnessgirl#hobby#like4like#follow4follow#blogger#blogger_de#fitnessblog#instafit
