Let the good times roll


Oozing enthusiasm
between spring sunshowers;
crooning along with the soft indie rock
wafting up the slope from main stage;
Mates - crinkled in their ageing skin
and with a harmonic off-centre world view.

Love 'crinkled in their aging skin' and 'off-centre world view', Julie. These are howling, romping, crooning good shots.

Nice words and great pictures! I don't see much ageing here, except maybe for the guy with the hat...

Excellent photos and insight! Such polar opposite of what's happening here, seasonally speaking that is !

Great shots. I like photographing people on the street. It's pretty hard to get shots that are any good.

Looks like you caught the guy in the top shot in a moment of joyful crooning.

How 'at peace with himself' he must be.

A wonderful Wednesday for you.

I love the howling guy in the first shot.

The white-haired fellow may be dressed like an ageing hippy, but he certainly has modern equipment!

How nice to see human beings enjoying themselves instead of the war pictures in the papers. (this is probably not a good thing to say on Remembrance Day)

As usual, your photographs are great and very meaningful (along with your words). I really enjoy what you write.
