    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.

    Wonderful pictures. They remind me of Woodstock back in 1969 but without all the rain and mud. Ah, youth, enjoy 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.

    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!

  19. […] Got a good feeling as a fellow blogger, Patrick Latter, has begun to re-post his amazing photography to an astonishingly happy group of followers. […]

    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. 😉
