Thamsanqa Shabalala of Ladysmith Black Mambazo – 2018 Lowell Summer Music Series


2018 photo100 – #53

I, like most Americans, first experienced the vocal power of this group on Paul Simon’s 1986 album “Graceland”. The simple stage setup for this group, 9 microphones, belies the complexity of the harmonies and rhythms crafted by this Grammy winning ensemble.

Oddly enough I didn’t find his head to be particuarly large. 😉 I did find his guitar chops to be stellar!

River of Needles

One hint I share with budding photographers is to learn to see in black-and-white; Focus only on the light and shadow aspects of a scene and picture in your mind an image devoid of color.

This image started out as an over-exposed shot of pine needles floating on a pond. A few tweaks in Lightroom and viola!
