Shakemore 2015

Once again, I enjoyed (and photographed) the annual Shakemore extravaganza foisted on a witting community of cheerful energetic folks by David & Jad Fair and crew.
This year's fiesta was on August 8 and 9, 2015, at The Thought Lot in Shippensburg, PA.

The bands I photographed included: Bang Bang LuLu, Flotation Device, Jumbo Jet, The Tinklers, The Degenerettes, Weird Paul Rock Band (Weird Paul Petroskey), Danielson Family (Danielson), and
Half Japanese.


Great seeing everyone.

Y'all rock.

Smart and happy.

Brian Wilson

I spent most of today photographing Brian Wilson, the musician formerly associated with the Beach Boys. He was appearing in the Washington DC area to lend his support for Change Direction and Give An Hour, programs that promote mental health services and education.

Thanks to Kristen Lee, Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, Sally Charney, and all the staff of Give an Hour for the opportunity to serve.

And thank you to Brian Wilson and his kind and brave wife, Melinda.

Brian's music is deeply beautiful.

So is he.

Summer vacation / Warwick New York, and the road home.

Gentle road adventures.

After a day driving, Ruth and I stopped in the pretty town of Warwick, New York. We stayed at the Sleepy Valley Inn.

B&B's. Yes.

A sweet and fitting way station to begin the last leg of our journey home.
