A day in the life of me:

3:00pm: shot Angela Thompson’s daughters:

They really were a joy to photograph.  They are beautiful little girls that easy  to get great expressions out of.  I relied on my instincts more, and only shot 170 frames (down from my typical 300 +). I blogged about this earlier here; I think I’ve made some changes and am hitting a new stride.  Feels great.

5:30pm: Shot Claire Evanson’s family

8:00pm: Arrived at Complex… shot The Better Life Band:

And then Lola Black:

And then Pop Evil took the stage:   See more of their photos here, and check out the video too. I’ll bet you know this song. It’s BAD ASS:  http://www.paulduanephoto.com/2012/06/pop-evil-concert-1-june-2012/

After the show, we (some guys from Better Life Band, the guys from Pop Evil, and myself ) all went over to the new club in The Complex, Evolve.

After last call, we went out to Pop Evil’s tour bus and hung out till the wee hours.  I talked mostly with Matt, the bassist. The topic of long hair came up – he’s got fantastic long hair – and he revealed one of his secrets:

He brought me on the tour bus, went back to his bunk, and he pulled out the Moroccan Oil. He had me try some in my hair – very nice stuff.  Feels like it’s super good for your hair.

Around 2:00 am, my buddy Joe, purveyor of the 1/4 Mile High Club in SLC, invited me to come hang, saying that some people were going to be there.  Joe’s place rarely disappoints, so I left the tour bus party and made my way to Joe’s. Upon arriving, I found Joe, Al, and a Ukranian girl who trades solely on her looks. Somehow I managed to get Joe in trouble for showing me a compromising photo of her from a few nights previous.  I was a very clumsy wing man. The night previous had been epic in proportions, and my energy levels soon ramped down from the day’s activities.  Before I knew it, I was dozing off on Joe’s sofa.  I picked my sleepy ass up, put it in my car, returned home, and slept like a baby.

Life is good.
