It is always fun to get a chance to photograph some live music, and what is better than three full days of music. I had a blast photographing Buddy Guy, Dr. John, Junior Brown, Here Come the Mummies, Robert Cray, and the Word among many other great musicians at the annual Roots N Blues N BBQ festival at Stephens Lake Park in Columbia, Missouri.

I have started my Holga Summer personal photography project again for the summer where I take a photo a day with my plastic toy Holga camera from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

It is a fun and challenging project to complete. Taking pictures on film really makes you slow down, and with only one frame a day makes you think about the composition and timing of your frame. Shooting on film you don’t have the immediate feedback of the back of a digital camera. It is alway fun to drop off a roll of film and return a couple of days later to see what turned out and which pictures weren’t quite as successful.

Developing and scanning all of the film is also pretty time consuming, I will do my best to post the photos as often as possible. Be sure to check back throughout the summer to see all of the Holga Summer photos.

What a treat it was to see and photograph Matthew Curry perform his mix of blues and rock n’ roll at Columbia, Missouri’s Rose Music Hall. Curry is making his way across the United States, with The Matthew Curry Band on their Moving Down the Line Tour.

It was really fun to watch him perform in a small club like the Rose Music Hall because it won’t be long before the nineteen-year-old guitarist is headlining his own major shows. Be sure to check Curry out if he is ever traveling through your hometown, you will not be disappointed.
