Central Kentucky event photographer: Judge Pierce Lively dinner
There was a time somewhere in junior high or high school when I thought lawyer might be a cool career path. Shooting the reunion of clerks for retired Federal Judge Pierce Lively had me wishing I’d followed that path and clerked for this dearly beloved man.
But then I wouldn’t have had the privilege of shooting this event.
It was an interesting use of the word reunion because only two clerks at a time worked for Judge Lively over his several decades on the bench. So most of the attendees had not worked together, but they shared the common bond of having worked for a man of great principle, intelligence and discipline in the small-town setting of Danville. That was clear from the numerous tributes to Judge Lively over the evening, as well as the fact that they all just love the man.
