Sound Bites And Leftovers

Chris Singh, A Boy Named John

Here’s a few more images from the House of Independents show from a few weeks ago. While Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son as the headliner, the other bands were pretty darn good too.

Deaf Rhino

Unfortunately, I didn’t get much of this band. I was back and forth between backstage and my truck when they went on, and I just didn’t have much time. Very loud, very rockin’ though.

A Boy Named John




That’s Jeff Crespi, an Asbury Park music photo legend, at work in front.




They had a Queens of The Stone Age sound to them. This last shot is similar to the one leading off this post. I got enthralled with the light that was on Chris, with and without the mirror ball effect. I was happy with how my FujiX100T was performing in the low light here.

The Vaughns

Their sound grew on me as their set went on. A little Smashing Pumpkins, a little Nirvana, a little Four Non Blondes. Very trippy.

And some leftovers…

And, on the way out of town, just before picking up 195 West to head home, my last shot of August 2017…

Never Forget

In Remembrance

One morning, a few years ago in Jersey City, New Jersey, I got lucky with some beautiful light at the 9/11 Memorial there.


Read about Joe McNally’s fantastic project:

My kids went back to school this week so the page has definitely turned. I take my dog, Bo, out for a walk early each morning, and I’ve had to start pulling on the sweatshirt.

And the full schedule of NFL games start this week.

Even at work, it feels like it’s time to get after some of those projects I put off all summer.

Any fun project planned? I have a few,  more to come on that.

So, let’s keep on moving on.

And remember…….Back Up Your Work!

How To Avoid Work

And for all those affected by Hurricane Harvey…and any of my readers in the path of Hurricane Irma, our thoughts are with you. Hurricane Sandy is still fresh in our minds here in New Jersey. We know what it’s like. Stay safe!
