Free Survivor Concert at the Northwest Fourth Fest
Hoffman Estates, Illinois
7 July, 2012

I'm really proud of this set of pics. They're not perfect, of course, and I had to do a fair amount of post-processing on most of them as far as the lighting goes--Jimi's stage outfit, nice as it was (and it was VERY nice; I do so love him in white... sigh drooling emoticon ) made getting the exposure right rather a challenge, particularly with that super-bright spotlight the stage crew was using thrown into the mix. But even so, I think these are still some of my best concert shots to date--though of course the excellent subject matter certainly doesn't hurt! winking emoticon

Sigh... if lusting after a guy in his 60's is wrong, then I don't want to be right...

Okay, I have no idea who the little boy is, but isn't that just the sweetest pic ever? You can really tell how good Jimi is with kids...

This is, far and away, my absolute favorite pic from this show--and possibly also my favorite out of all the ones I've taken of him EVER. I mean, seriously, the word "angelic" comes to mind... SIGH drooling emoticon melted emoticon hearts emoticon (Though he is fishing for vampires again, too laughing emoticon )
