photo share: June concerts

As many of you already know, June was an amazing month of attending concerts and shows for me and Jake. Our lineup consisted of the following:
We were way overdue for this, and every single minute of it was completely worth it. I also had the opportunity to take pictures at several of these events, which was even more amazing. Today I'm sharing just a few of my pictures from Polish Fest, Lakefront Festival of Art, and Summerfest. Enjoy. (My brother is the one on keyboards at Polish Fest and Summerfest.)

Jake keeps asking me why so many of my photos are in black and white. It just seems to keep happening. It may pass soon or it may go on for years. It's hard to tell. I'm really not sure what else to say about that. He also wanted to know why I've been taking so many pictures at concerts that don't include people's heads. If you also thought that while checking out this post, you're not alone. Hopefully it works for some of you.

Have you been to any concerts, shows, or festivals this summer?


  1. I totally "get" the lack of heads! You are focusing on something else--the instruments, a feeling. The photos aren't about the actual people playing.
    lucky you--so many live venues!

  2. Tell Jake that the "headless" photos are focusing on what the people are doing, not who they are! :)

  3. Like Jake, I kept wondering why so many were black and white or headless! Glad I'm not the only one! I thought maybe it was a privacy thing so now I know it's intentional and I'm just not artsy enough to get it!

  4. Great photos! I love the headless photos and the black and white. They have style!

  5. I think the b/w shots are cool :) They seem to suit the event imho!

  6. I didn't even notice you cut off people's heads! I like the composition of an "imperfect" shot anyway. Makes it feel more life-like.

  7. I think it's cool when you get shots of them heads needed :)
    And I've said it before...b&w shots are just so them!
