Pictures for Money

I have always liked to try to picture the spirit of something as much as document it. This pic has sold nicely over the ears. It was late night at one of the the Isle of Wight Festivals, As I recall, Miles Davis was playing Bitches Brew and I turned around to the audience and looked into one of the stage lighst coming from the back of the arena area. The photographers were all in a compound directly in from of the stage. It was LOUD there!

I just noticed htis guy, backlit and wearing some sort of top hat and whacking a tambourine.

With the smoke from camp fires and (mainly, I reckon) marijuana, it was a very atmospheric and good natured take on the festival
