Aww…some Monday – Spring Soccer
I love photographing soccer. It is one of easiest sports to access for photography. I can walk the sidelines and nobody cares. Fall football requires press passes and restricted areas. Some baseball and softball venues have no good locations to set up a cameras while some track and field events pose some difficult lighting situations. Spring soccer is here and the local teams are now in action. Here are a few images from the most recent girls contests.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
This week the theme at 4M is music from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Pick a decade or mix them up. This era is right in my wheel house. I was a pre-teen in the fifties, graduated high school in 1965, and married my best friend in 1974. There was some awesome music during this period, so let’s give a listen to some of my favorites.
I didn’t really have a deep interest in music in the fifties. I was a pre-teen and playing baseball was much more interesting to me than playing records. I do remember watching American Band Stand and one act that always got my attention was the Everly Brothers. Their music was a cross-over from country. I found their harmony much to my liking even in this very early video.
The sixties brought the British Invasion, Surf sounds, Flower children, MoTown, Acid Rock, Folk Rock and so much more. I don’t know that I can pick a favorite genre from this era and it may go down in history as the golden age of rock music.
The seventies may be best known for Disco, but Hard Rock, Soft Rock, and Soul music were all popular, and outlaw country found an audience with Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and others.
Boogie on ya’ll!! Have a blessed week.
