2013: A STUDY IN BLACK & WHITE, PART I
|Sam's Burger Joint and Music Hall, where my photography journey began|
in November 2010. You can see all of my 4,600-plus photos of Sam's
music shows here.
2013 was another banner year for following the music scene in San Antonio.
But instead of a year-end wrap-up like I normally write every January, I thought I’d try something different this year. I picked one photo from each show that I thought would look best in black and white. The first 15 are listed below. The others will follow over the next few days.
Ready, set, go…
|This first photo is actually not from a show, but from a photo shoot |
Jan. 5 at Mission San Juan for bluesman Charlie Cruz,
known as Cool Cat Charlie. He used several of my photos on his
self-titled CD which was released this year.
