A Central Florida Fall Festival

October 9, 2012

Last Sunday afternoon, I attended the Maitland Rotary Art Festival.

Maitland exists next to North Orlando.  On the way to my Peacock Room Happy Hour gig, I drive though here and pass by Lake Lily, the spot where the festival takes place every year.

There’s a fall festival and and a spring festival in Maitand.  Surprisingly, someone recognized me as DJ Stone Crazy during a spring festival.

As for the art, I didn’t get many photos. Besides, some artists give non-friendly looks towards people photographing their work.

Because I rarely carry much money on me, I avoided buying food.

Usually, I head for the booze.

After viewing the festival, I walked to Maitland Library’s book sale.

For a dollar, I bought these two literary gems.

That’s right, two great books for a dollar.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, the freaky Swedish mystery.

Smack by Melvin Burgess, known as Junk in other countries.

As I read these books, I know just the music to listen to, especially since Smack takes place in Bristol, England.

Tricky, the king of trip-hop from Bristol.

Like I mentioned earlier, Maitland hosts  a fall festival and a spring festival.  A book sale happens during the spring festival also.  I’m looking forward to the spring.

Lucky Buddha Night

October 5, 2012

The following pics are from a DJ gig at Little Fish – Huge Pond, located in Sanford, Florida.

This was my first time seeing Lucky Buddha beer.

I jumped into the fun too.

Outside, an argument happened across the street.

A cop showed.

Nobody got arrested. Soon, things went back to normal.

Orlando At Night (No Flash)

October 2, 2012

When it comes to night photography, I sometimes avoid using flash.  These photos contains pics of Downtown Orlando.

Back in ancient times, I first used 3200 film.

A Downtown Orlando parking garage.

Another parking garage.

In a car, me and a sexy redhead  engaged in sensual seduction.  This spot no longer exists.  A hotel and bank rests here now.

An advertisement for my favorite musical.  I saw Cabaret back in 2001.

For the next two photos, I used 800 film.  This was a performance in the Downtown Orlando band shell.  I never knew the production’s name.

The last six are digital.  On my Canon Rebel, I set the ISO at 1600.  Some photos I converted to black and white.

Others I left alone.

I rarely do these kinds of shots. Yet, now that I have a blog to post them on, I might do more.
