You know, when you love a person, a place, a thing, and you have a camera, there is no such thing as too many photos. The emotion of the experience comes back when you review them.
I really love the high ceiling of The Outta Space. Every detail has been taken care of, which includes the bare wood ceiling and painted roof truss.
Lou Shields knows I like to taking photographs, so he puts up with me when I point the camera at him like this. Sunset was taking place through the rolling garage door windows, giving enough rim lighting to make it interesting. I have to say, I enjoy having starting out using a fully manual 35mm SLR camera. If you have a camera with a good built in light meter, as mine was, you could set it on the fly while looking through the lens and get the photograph you wanted.
Opening the evenings set of music was Christine Melody. Christine has a very warming stage presence, and a voice to match. The smoothness of her vocal reminded me a little of Melissa Ethridge, Natalie Merchant, Natasha Bedingfield, or Paula Cole going on. I am interested in watching her grow musically as she perfects her voice as Christine.
Some photographs are striking. Some subjects are striking. When you combine the two, as I have with a man and his banjo, tuning it because his art depends on it, then you have captured it all, as in this next photograph with no editing.
You cannot help but love Lou. He is the kind of person that when you meet him, you are at ease. You would invite him to supper after the first few minutes of conversation. He is honest, hardworking, and very grateful.
