Just Call Me Angel, Part II

DaGoddess @ 10:00

(Part I is a bit lost somewhere back a couple years.)

Anyhow, Rick Estrin and the Nightcats also performed at Doheny Blues Festival. I had to take a shot at getting close to the stage for a few photos. Rick saw me and winked. I giggled. (I swear, I’m such a child sometimes.) Later, when I ran into him he said, “Hey, Angel, how you doin’ these days?” That’s what he calls me. I let him. It amuses us both. I doubt he remembers my real name or even the number of times we’ve met. Doesn’t matter. We both laugh.

That’s pretty much a standard rule I have with any of the artists. They can call me whatever name they like as long as it’s something nice. They don’t have to remember my true name. Or that we’ve met once, twice, sixteen, or thirty times. For the most part, blues artists are wonderfully kind and respectful and I try my best to present them in a good light because of this.

  1. Wow, that first picture is astounding. Almost 3-D. :shock:

  2. Thanks, Pam. It’s the first one I edited and just one of probably 60 I shot. Still have much to do with the photos. Argh!

  4. Thanks.

    Flash wasn’t an option where I was. I was shooting through about six people as it was. I do need to lighten it a bit, though. I can see it now that it’s online.

    Not really wide. Aperture: f/9. ISO: 200.

  7. Background’s a little distracting in the first shot, but you got his face perfect!
