20180312: SanJuan de los Lagos, LIVE Music, finally…

Anyone who knows me knows I like Live Music that is real music.

Well, today I happened to be on the plaza when  band did a little warming the crowd up & then I stepped away for a bit & returned when the politicians were presenting awards.

Then a bit more music was played.

Yeah, hand held both times, second time I had a mic from my kit on but a little.

Nope, I did not do much editing, no one here in town will care much. So kind of just the raw footage as I cut to just the songs and a couple seconds afterwords splicing them all together.

Enjoy a decent Mexican band with people who had singing voices & played real music.

Any way, I am having fun & building business finally here in town. This poster will be for sale the next time I am selling on the street. Today I got rained on and it was lunch time, so I picked up the new posters.

I Am considering going back out if the rain stops. Just light sprinkles when I came back a little bit a go.

So whatever you celebrate, in whatever style you do it, may it be happy & fun.

(personally I hate this time of year too many family members have used Nov. to Feb. to destroyed everything in my life. But I lived in snow country for 25 years so I love winter itself, without humans.)

20171121: Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” repair test shots. Looking Good!

So this past weekend was some part of Mexican Independence Celebration, the locals that speak English could not explain it fully to me.

But with the 16-35mm back in action, it was time to go play in the night with it.

Nothing better than a reflection in the night when you don’t have stars to shoot!

My Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 just is not able to pull this off, standing a little further back and the wall containing the fountain hides the reflection of the crosses.

Most the time this fountain is either on or dry… so I shot both sides.
