These photographs were made in Luckenbach, Texas a few days ago. There were a couple of hundred people on hand that day celebrating Texas Independence. I didn’t know there was a party going on until I got there. It was great fun.
Luckenbach is an excellent place to photograph musicians onstage. You can get in close for some really interesting shots. The crowds there are always eclectic. Generally they are a mix of cowboys, professional types masquerading as bikers and tourists who drift down from Fredricksburg. Everyone hangs out in front of the outdoor stage to drink a few beers and relax. It is a target rich environment for enterprising photographers. Well worth a visit if you are in the Texas Hill Country.
