Seeing Jimmy Buffett Live Again
Each year we see Jimmy Buffett live. The usual show in Indianapolis did not happen this year so we made our way to Tinley Park to see Jimmy Buffett at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre. Had we seen Jimmy in Indy we would have had to rush there during the week as usual, and we would not have been able to see the Stanley Cup in person. You can read more about seeing the Stanley Cup in yesterdays post by clicking here. When you go and see Jimmy live you pretty much know what you are going to get. With some acts that can be a bad thing. With the classics that you here at Jimmy’s show though you are just there to experience it with everyone else. Three years ago I went to my first Jimmy Buffett concert. Last year we took my step-daughter to her first Buffett show. This year my one year old enjoyed her first show. The songs have a beat that she could dance to, and she had a great time. These are great shows for the entire family. I hope that Jimmy will come near us next year. It would not seem like summer without seeing Jimmy Buffett.
Using the Canon Powershot G16 To Photograph the Jimmy Buffett Concert
For the second year in a row I took my Canon Powershot G16 to the Jimmy Buffett show. Last year it was my big test for the camera. I wanted a smaller camera for family reasons, but it also is acceptable to take into concerts. That post which you can see here has been one of the more successful posts in the past year. I put the camera to the test on that day, and it passed with flying colors. It does have some noise issues, but that is easily fixed inside of Lightroom. This little camera really is great for a point and shoot. You have a full manual mode that puts you in complete control. When I was looking for a smaller camera this was very important to me. This has been a purchase that I have been very happy with for the past year.
