Random Bandom

Going through my last several shoots (prior to the camera going caput), I’ve been trying to pull shots I know the bands will like. I’ll be sending images to them and trying to get them displayed on the blues society site as well. Also trying to get myself pumped up for a birthday party for a singer this weekend.

Anyhow… First up is Hugh Gaskins & the G-String Daddies.

A lot of the performers gathering for this party are people I know. Some, however, I’ve only exchanged emails with for the most part. Then there will be a couple of rather noted performers and that would be fun. Especially if I could find a camera to use. Better believe I’m going to be looking for gear to borrow! I want to be able to give the hostess a CD of the images afterward so she can remember how much fun her birthday celebration was.

I know. Me showing up somewhere without a camera shouldn’t be a big deal, but that’s who I am. I’m the photographer. People expect it. In fact, last Saturday, I got in my friend’s car to head out to our big competition finals and she looked at me as if I were crazy. “Where’s the camera? Aren’t you going to shoot today?” And then I told her what happened. “Girl, we gotta get you a camera. That’s your job! That’s you.” Yes, yes it is.

We’ll see what happens. I also have Train Song Festival on Saturday with LD. I love wandering around down at the park and listening to the stories and music. It’s the perfect time of year for this. But it also feels weird to be going sans camera. As will next weekend when I have another blues event with rare performances and big blues artists in town.

I’ll figure it all out. I always do.

In the meantime, I have lots of photos to sort through and lucky you…you get to see them!


  1. I love the photos, and I love the band’s name! And yes, you do need a camera. If you lived near me, I’d loan you my pitiful little Kodak EasyShare point-n-shoot! :-(

  2. They’re a fun band and all three are awfully nice.

    I ended up not going yesterday. I went into homebody mode and enjoyed the time I had to myself.
