2013—Day 97—Who Will Buy?

I will buy: “Ripe strawberries, ripe!” Who Will Buy? is a song from “Oliver!” one of my all time favorite musicals. I was privileged to see the original London cast performing it in San Francisco at the Curran Theater in 1962 before it went on Broadway. It remains the most memorable stage production I have had the privilege to enjoy. This morning when I drove by my “go-to” strawberry farm on the way home from the gym, that song came to mind when I saw they were open so I pulled in. They haven’t been open because of road construction in front of their farm. I was saddened to learn that this will be the last year of wonderful strawberries and other fresh produce at Granny May’s Strawberry Farm. Development is forcing them out.

I took a little time this morning to set up my shot and I used a reflector to even out the lighting.

2013—Day 96—Bokeh Drums

Joy & Madness played at Famous Mo’s tonight and they were indeed joyful and yes, a bit mad, but delightful and we had a full house. I took only a few shots tonight because I was busy but before things got busy and as the band was setting up for tonight’s performance, I was drawn to the lighting and colors of this drum kit. And of course the bokeh makes it a winner!
