HELLO FREE SPIRITS.
I’m writing to you from the land of Tennessee, where the mountains are smoky, the woods are dolly, and my mother buys us lunch! We’re counting our tarps and bottles of sunscreen in anticipation of leaving bright and early Thursday morning for Bonnaroo, and we were just wondering if maybe you wanted to come hang out with us?
We’ll be at the southwest side of the Broo’ers Fest tent, where the picnic tables (and 3k other people) (JK!) (but srsly) are, Friday at 2pm. Megan (above, L) and I (above, 2nd from R) will be wandering around, probs awkwardly, holding one or more beers and lookin’ hot. Temperature hot, I mean. Or soaking wet maybe? It’s an exciting mystery! Either way we’d really love to see your equally hot/wet faces so we can maybe draw on each other and make You Do Roo bracelets! I can also braid your hair, if you wish.
You might have noticed that I didn’t do a travel journal for Bonnaroo 2013, and that’s because I was shooting with my stepdad’s Canon T50 35mm from 1983 — which was amazing — but then I lost the film and couldn’t develop the pictures until LAST MONTH. And there are still undeveloped rolls! This is just how things go sometimes. Not this next time! But sometimes.
Because I’m officially Not Very Good At This (and wanted to stay in the photo pits as long as possible), I took way too many shots of Tallest Man On Earth and Cat Power. Don’t let that stop you from browsing through the these pictures though! You’ll probably think “Goodness sakes, this woman takes remarkable photos of the same thing over and over again. I believe spending part of my Friday afternoon with her might be the grandest use of my time. I do declare!”
Hope we see you at the Broo’ers Fest at 2pm on Friday!
