I just finished putting captions on all of the 150 photos in this gallery of shots from the 1986 Clyde Childress Memorial Tournament. Thanks to all of you who helped me identify all of the pool players (and some spectators) in this set of photographs. We have turned off the printing option and the downloading of the original files, but you are cordially invited to browse through the gallery. Maybe you'll see someone you know or even yourself!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that Danny Jones in picture number 20?

Sure is, and it is captioned as such. Check below each photo for a caption that will tell you who is in the picture.

Great, thanks! It was neat to see these old pictures. I remember knowing Danny (who is sadly no longer with us)about fifteen years when he hung out at Pockets pool hall in Shreveport. Those pictures brought back some great memories.

Yeah, I happened to have several good shots of Danny at that tournament. Glad you liked them. If you know any of Danny's friends/relatives, you might tell them to check out the gallery.

Hi,
I just came across your photos and loved them. I am a pro photog as well as a pretty good pool player. I have been thinking about one of these gallerys and was wondering what you thought of smugmug so far. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Truly,

Jonathan,

Thanks for the compliment! As for Smugmug, and bearing in mind that I am NOT a pro photographer, it has been fine for my needs so far. They have several types of accounts available from Standard to Professional. I am using their mid-level account that allows you to customize your site to some extent and have 12 gigs a month of traffic. You cannot actually build your own website however. With the highest level of account ($150/year), you can set your own prices for prints and have unlimited traffic. Here's a link to an independent review of Smugmug: http://www.rassoc.com/gregr/weblog/archive.aspx?post=788

I think you can do a free trial with them. Hope this helps.
