It’s great to see you post something up again!
I’ve moved to Vancouver recently and have just been very busy. Hopefully can start posting regularly again!
Wonderful photos. Enjoyed looking at them…
What phenomenal images!
We missed you but as always breath taking pictures you have a gift Patrick
I just love your photos, especially of people. You capture so much joy!
After living in Austin, and having been to a number of outdoor festivals, it surprises me to see absolutely no smoking in any of these pictures. I’m sure it took place, but not one picture shows a cigarette or joint. It’s kind of refreshing, honestly.
Outstanding, Patrick. These are the photos that give me hope that humanity can live its essence.
Bohemians, buskers, artists and more. It looks like a great celebration of incredible life.
Oh, thank you! Such beautiful pictures… you were missed!
I just love the bird on the wheel spoke (pic 4, I think)
Superb set of images and a fascinating bunch of characters
Feel the love Patrick, really FAB photos
Love your landscapes!! Missed you too
Wonderful pictures. They remind me of Woodstock back in 1969 but without all the rain and mud. Ah, youth, enjoy it.
super super like! always love your posts. So much to learn from your shots (been a while since the last one though) missed it
Just incredible! You really captured the spirit of the event, Patrick. Reminds me so much of our local FloydFest in SWVirginia.
My favorite may just be the simplest … the B&W spoked wheel with bird.
One truly talented photographer! Always enjoy seeing your work!
It’s like looking at National Geographic photos of some newly-discovered tribe. Amazing.
Beautiful, you captured the essence of the humanity of this festival. Inspired!

Oh, Patrick. This is one of the most incredible collections of festival photos I’ve ever seen. Your ability to capture personalities is impressive. I started following your blog for the mountain photos, but these completely blow me away. The feet, the giggles, the light, the leaps, the embraces, the messages, the magic….your skill is enviable. I’m so glad you have a camera. 😉
What an impressive collection like a whole lifetime of experiences! This is wonderful, awesome and fantastic to share all of these with us!
What a beautiful event, and such *joy*… Thanks for capturing it, and spreading it to the world at large!
Looks like so much fun!
You captured precious moments and precious faces. A great collection of pics…talent. Congrats
