Second verse, same as the first — I took this two years ago with my Coolpix, the first time I ever saw Bowerbirds play. One of the few concert shots I took with that camera that I’m still proud of. It rained buckets that night, and they were wonderful. Tonight I sat in a lawn chair on a sweltering June evening, no rain, and shot with the zoom lens, lazy, drinking beer in cans and keeping up with college baseball scores via text message. Tonight was a show for me, not for my portfolio.
But once upon a time two years, Bowerbirds at the Gardens were also a show that gave me potential. And they are still and always wonderful.
