Rockin' the Dock on the Kemah Boardwalk
Posted By: Sailor, 07-12-2008, 08:28 PM

During the Summer, the Kemah Boardwalk - one of Landry's restaurant-amusement complexes- offers a free concert on Thursday nights called "Rock the Dock". My wife and I generally show up at one or two during the season, and we ended up there a couple of days ago (she goes to hear the band, I go to see the Budweiser girls). I attempted some (very) low light shots of the band (with the unlikely name of the Slags); here are the results. All were taken with my K10D at ISO 800 or 1600 with my FA 35/2 (wide open) and shutter speeds of 1/90 or (considerably) slower, and the photographer was in a recreational mood after a couple or three G&T's. Also, two or three of the images are seriously cropped. Consequently, the technical quality of the pictures is nothing to write home about. Still, I enjoyed taking and PP them.

We arrived to late for the Bud girls, besides my wife clearly indicated that I was pushing my luck with shots 3, 4 and 5.

Jer, let me be the first to say that these photos aren't half bad at all. lol (taking into consideration both the conditions and the recreatinal condition of the photographer.) :-)

Take care,

Take care,
Thanks, Heinrich. I really enjoyed taking these (for all the reasons you might suspect). Fortunately, my bride of (almost) 40 years is a tolerant soul and I came out of the experience with my scalp in place!

There is no way....

I am a singer / front person in bands... Have been for 25 years.

There is no way you can sing in those shoes... You can look good alright...

But you cant sing the blues in red high heeled shoes.... Cant be done...

Or at least I could never pull it off.

You're funny Gus, where have you been lately? I've missed your humour.

For which, Gus, I'm betting the audience has been grateful.
