DSCF0134

From Elmore Holmes: “My wife and I went out and took some pictures on Sunday, when the level was 47.4 feet on the Memphis gauge. This shot was taken in Tom Lee Park, which is flooded for the first time in my lifetime. Tom Lee was an African-American resident of Memphis who, even though he couldn't swim, went out in a rowboat and rescued over 30 people from a sinking steamboat. The statue in the photo stands in Tom Lee Park in honor of this heroic feat. I am the paddler in the photo, and my wife, Martha Kelly, shot it.”
