15-09-15 Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic Emmylou Harris/Rodney Crowell

One thing they don’t tell you about the blues
When you got ’em
You keep on fallin’ ’cause there ain’t no bottom
An’ there ain’t no end, least not for Lillian

Emmylou Harris

She doesn’t write that much but she writes that well.

Monochromatic is this week’s challenge

I decided to go with a classic grey scale monochromatic image from The Traveling Kind Tour (Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell) stop at the Beacon Theater tonight.

3-28-13 Wrong Location – Wrong Lens – Who Cares – Great Concert

“I guess you had to be there, she said, you had to be
She handed me a yellowed photograph
And then said, See
This was my greatest love, my one and only love
And this is me
Back when we were beautiful, see

I don’t feel very different, she said, I know it’s strange
I guess I’ve gotten used to these little aches and pains
But I still love to dance, you know we used to dance
The night away
Back when we were beautiful, beautiful, yes

I hate it when they say
I’m aging gracefully
I fight it every day
I guess they never see
I don’t like this at all
What’s happening to me
To me

But I really love my grandkids, she said, they’re sweet to hold
They would have loved their grandpa
Those awful jokes he told
You know sometimes for a laugh, the two of us would act
Like we were old
Back when we were beautiful, beautiful, yes

But I guess you had to be there…”
Matraca Berg

They wouldn’t let me bring my zoom lens with me to the Richard Thompson and Emmylou HarrisRodney Crowell concert at the Beacon Theater last night so these shot are strictly for documentary purposes…It was a great concert. I don’t know who thought of the idea of this double bill but it certainly worked.

Just a few of the high points: Richard singing 1952 Vincent Black Lightning with just his acoustic guitar; Richard joining Emmylou and Rodney and their band on “Ain’t Living Long Like This”; Emmylou and Rodney singing the Matraca Berg song above; and Emmylou doing “Boulder To Birmingham” with Rodney singing harmony.
