Only Music Has the Answer

Dear Thirsty,

Let me tell you about a woman I know. She’s a tough, smart, no-nonsense legal eagle by day. But nights bring out her true super powers. Armed with favorite cameras and ever-requisite ear protection, elawgrrl is deep down a photographer. But she is not just any hobbyist shutterbug, mind you. Oh no. She’s a music photogextraordinaire. She braves the heat, the press of drunken revelers, the sweat, the spilled beer, the dangers of the mosh pit, all to capture those moments of live music shows. Her taste is eclectic, to put it mildly, so she has captured a treasure of great punk, rock, roots, Americana shows for posteritry- just to name a handful.

She – don’t forget, the name’s elawgrrl – also has an eye for great faces and places of all kinds, and has literally spanned the globe over the years, never ever ever without a camera to bring it all home to us. But don’t take my word for it, Thirsty dear, go and see for yourself. Here’s one of my favorites, which links directly to her portfolio.

Enjoy, dearest, hope you are quenched again.
