Tonight I photographed a truly amazing show by Macklemore and his producer/dj Ryan Lewis, as well as The Physics. All the songs had the crowd moving. It was an incredible night. If you haven’t heard of these two bands, you owe it to yourself to check them out!

I photographed the last few hours of Endfair, a free concert hosted on south campus at Western Washington University. I am saddened that I missed out on shooting the other talented acts! The evening was closed out by Saadi, from NY, who quipped that “people in New York don’t dance. Keep on dancing, you four,” and Macklemore, who first said “Bellingham came out to have a party!” and ended his concert with everyone’s favorite words: “Bellingham is my new favorite place in the world.”

Well, it’s over now. Bumbershoot. It only lasts three days these years (instead of the older four day schedule), and it just flies by. As I sat in the echoey walkways of Memorial Stadium filing my last photos from Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse, it really hit me: Bumbershoot is over
During the day I might be feeling tired from lugging camera gear all over, but each evening I tried to reflect on how terrific an assignment Bumbershoot is, and how privileged I felt to document it all three days. It is a special event each year, and as the last band plays the last show of the festival, I try to remember to put down my cameras and just take it all in. Something for me, and nobody else.
