100+ Strangers Challenge -The Drummer

Stranger 101

Sunday, I visited the Magic City Blues Society's Phelan Park Music Series for the first time. Well I've been missing out on some mighty fine music, I can tell you that much! Today I add Stranger 101 to the ongoing challenge. This is the drummer for Robin Rogers' Band. What a nice guy! More from the festival in days to come.

Olivier,
Merci. Vous savez musiciens, n'est-ce pas??? :)

Bibi said...

Handsome guy, and with two earrings, too!

Jilly said...

Ha! Snap. We both posted good looking guys today. Mine is on Monte Carlo DP!

I really like your shots. Looks a guy with a great sense of humour, as if he'd tease a person cos he likes them.

Tash said...

Oh my! this portrait is the BEST. Wonderful V.

I love both of these, V. You've caught two different sides of this man's beautiful energy.

JM said...

Great portraits, I like both too!

Daryl said...

I have the same earring .. and he has a great face .. drummers are almost weirder than singers who are only slightly odder than dancers ... no, really, they are.

Halcyon said...

Looks like a cool dude.

Looks like Sean Connery in the second pic.

Marie-Noyale said...

I like both of them too.

Abbie said...

Great portrait...shows music in the soul.

That top photo is amazing...well done!!! This is one he'd love to have...his family would love to have...captures his soul!!!

I like the second too...very different than the first, but excellent as well...

Ken Mac said...

as a former drummer I can say he is one cool dude!

Bob Crowe said...

Yep, the critic's choice. It's a beautiful portrait, glowing with warmth.

Maya said...

I love that B&W shot of him. He looks like an interesting guy!

Nathalie said...

I so admire you for those 100+ strangers - that is definitely a challenge I'm still a bit too shy to take but wow, what a great portrait!

B&W just makes it more powerful and the light highlights his features in a great way. A handsome man too, if I may add!

Chuck Pefley said...

A very striking portrait! Nice meeting new people, eh?

This might be one of my favorite of your Stranger series. You took a couple of french gentlemen that I loved too.
