The Thing of the Moment's 2009 American Folk Festival 'Why Do I Like These Photos' Quiz


Because....

a) I like the interplay of the piano top with the clouds and light?

b) I was the person who flipped up the cover up off the keys because I thought it looked cooler?

c) I didn't REALLY have any business being up there?

Choose two answers. No cheating.

The Only Shots I Remember Are The Shots I've Missed



Last year this guy asked me if I'd take a photo of him and his daughter, she was due to arrive the next day or something. The Folk Festival can be a bit on the big side, but I didn't see him again for the rest of the show.

This year during the set up, I found him working behind the Railroad stage and mentioned how I felt badly I hadn't been able to get that shot and he said "She's HERE!" and called her over.

Opportunity Found!
