It seems appropriate that my first event on Saturday started with 1996 Olympic decathlon champion Dan O'Brien, because my schedule quickly turned into The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner. Let's review the last few days. Gentlemen, start your engines.
Saturday, photos with Dan O'Brien and the CFSC heptathlon, followed by driving to Peachtree City, GA to photograph the Monkees show. Drive home, sleep a few hours, edit a few photos, and then photograph Festa Italiana for the Observer, Northwest School Of The Arts event for the Symphony, and then the colossal event that the Blumeys has become. Congrats to all of the winners and participants, and thanks to the 500 people that have liked my photo of David Dabbon since Sunday night. Glad I thought to take that photo.
Sunday into Monday, edit Observer photos, Blumeys photos (check out the Blumenthal's FB page for photos from the event), and excursions with Andrew Sandoval, Rich Dart and the Monkees team. Tuesday, two events, and the Monkees concert at the Blumenthal. Congrats to Andrew, Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork, Michael Nesmith on what is turning into an amazing week. And thanks for letting me run off with the circus for a couple of days. And see you later this year.
Tonight, the Rolling Thunder Revue is photographing the Lake Norman Law event in Mooresville, and the Speedway Charities gala in Charlotte. I hope to see you all at Housing Fest at the Fillmore Charlotte on Saturday. Here's to more Pleasant Valley days to come, and see you on the road.
