Photography isn’t all about photography.

Photography is in fact about time management. Something we never have enough of.  I enjoyed doing a musician a day, but couldn’t keep up with it on a daily basis.. that’s life for ya…  I am however going to keep adding weekly to this blog to introduce you to local musicians.   So let’s try this again 🙂

They were playing a battle of the bands competition in Chesapeake. Since then, I have
