Weekend Faces - December 3 and 4, 2011

Quite a weekend. I participated (music) and photographed two great local events in northeast Florida. Saturday was the Mandarin Community Winter Celebration and Sunday was the CD release event for "River Roads", a compilation CD of Florida recording artists who are also advocates for the preservation of our state's natural environment. The CD will benefit the Putnam County Environmental Council (and it has totally sold out -- a second run is in process!). I shot a total of over 300 images, and offer a few faces here to share what was an amazing weekend of fun and "music with a mission".

 Mandarin WInter Celebration -- young actress reenacting the life of Mandarin resident Harriet Beecher Stowe

 Mandarin Winter Celebration - I asked her to smile. This was it.

 Mandarin. Raven Stands Alone. A shining, brave spirit nearly destroyed in a recent bicycle run-in with a car.

 Mandarin. Yes, they did face painting!

 PCEC Concert: Bob Patterson. Florida Folk Legend.

 PCEC Concert: Dale Crider: Environmental Warrior.

 PCEC Concert: Whitey Markle. Florida advocate. Protector of the land.

 Lis Williamson. Angelic voice of Florida.

Lon Williamson. Quiet strength. Remarkable talent. Relentless friend.

Great faces, and I especially love the first, sixth, seventh and eighth as they show great contrast and character. Nicely done Paul!
