Rick Springfield

I don't generally use my blog site to post specific music shows that i shoot, unless it is to present a "best of" entry at the end of a year, but i had some better than average access to shoot the recent the Rick Springfield show at the Lawrenceburg Event Center and i was really pleased with both the show and my results so i thought i would publish them here. It looks a bit classier than Facebook after all. 
Now, i must admit i've never really been a Rick Springfield fan. I suppose everyone in my age group is at least familiar with Jessie's Girl, but beyond that i would be hard pressed to name one of his songs. Still, i was impressed with the playful energy and integrity that Springfield and his band brought to the stage that night, presenting a well produced and tastefully lit show that kept his mostly middle-aged audience on their feet for most of the evening. Rick still seems to play and sing as well as ever and frankly i hope that i can still look this good when i'm 67 years old. Keep on rockin' it Rick, you're doing just fine.

Garage Brewed Motorcycles

I don't often post my otherwise published event photograph on this blog unless something ends up in an end of the year "best of" entry, but now and again i shoot an event that doesn't get the kind of treatment in the publication that i would like to see  presented. Such is the case with the Garage Brewed Motorcycle Show, an annual event at one of my favorite local breweries, Rhinegeist. I've done similar "director's cuts" with my coverage of the classic car show Concours d'Elegance, mostly because the publications i was shooting these events for are (understandably) far more interested in photos of the attendees than the objects, but for my own proclivities i just can't help myself from focussing of the beauty of the machines.
Frankly, i must admit that i don't ride myself nor do i have any real desire to do so at any time in the future, but i have always loved the machines themselves along with the culture and folklore attached. Symbols of freedom, raw power, sexuality and rugged individualism abound. Storied legends of infamous biker gangs living hard and fast on the outside of the law feed a certain romanticism on biker culture and our love of the "bad boy". But as the saying goes, we're not a gang, we're a club!
