Singin' in the Rain......

This past 4 days has been a pleasant break from the ongoing renovations and upgrades that I have been doing to our home. For Father's Day, my wife and children had given me a 4 day pass to the Bluesfest on the Windsor riverfront, right in front of Caesar's Casino. I was delighted, as I enjoy this type of music, and had spent many a Saturday evening listening to Saturday Night Blues on CBC radio, hosted by Holger Petersen. The bands were top notch, and I just sat back and soaked it up. Soaked is the operative word here, as just about every evening, the heavens opened up, and dropped the wet stuff for a short while, then it dried up again. Windsor seems to be like that. However, it did not seem to deter the performers or the spectators one little bit. They just kept it going, and everyone had a great time. These shots were taken from under a rather large double umbrella that my daughter had left in my car, and it sure came in handy for this event. The food and beverages were very good, and I am certainly looking forward to this event again next year.

Camera: Fuji FinePix S9100 with 28 ~ 300 mm fixed lens.

Ahhh those lovely umbrellas. I'm attending Mattawa's Voyageur Days this weekend and the forecast calls for rain. Yipes, just like last year. I hope they are wrong. Good music always makes for good photo ops.

Hey John,
It was almost like shooting a wedding
LOL! Thanks for looking in, and could you please e-mail me again, as I had to replace my hard drive (did it myself too!)last week, and need it for my address book. I am looking for the files you wanted and will e-mail them to you soon. Thanks, Dave
