Jimi Jamison and Fergie Frederiksen Performance to benefit the Herb Brooks Foundation
Saint Paul, Minnesota
1 March, 2013

I apologize for the image quality on a lot of these--I think it was actually darker inside the club for this show than it has been at most of the outdoor gigs I've been to, and I really had to run the ISO on my camera up to get anything like decent shots. (And even then, this was the first time I've seen my Pentax struggle; it was nearly impossible to meter anything properly, so I finally just locked in both the aperture and shutter speed and hoped. And I remember the autofocus actually hunting a couple of times, too, which is VERY unusual--most of the time it's crisp and responsive even when tracking a moving subject.) Anyway, the colors are a bit grainy because of the high ISO and all the post-processing work I had to do, but hopefully you'll still enjoy seeing them... if nothing else, they're way better than I would have done if I were still using my old point-and-shoot! (And, well, Himself in his leathers is always worth seeing, no? winking emoticon )

Seriously, how many guys at Jimi's age can wear leather pants and make them look that good? drooling emoticon

I was personally rather glad I'd worn long sleeves to this performance (it was something like 20 degrees outside that night--brr!) but it must have been a lot warmer up on stage than it was in the audience, because Jimi certainly didn't waste much time in taking his jacket off... not that I minded at all, you understand. winking emoticon

Mmm... arm muscles and black leather, what more could a girl ask for? drooling emoticon (Okay, maybe a few more hugs and enough time for a proper conversation, but I guess you can't win them all...)
