Carlos Light

You may fairly say this photo of Carlos Santana is not exactly in focus, but then again some well known photographers have often shot slightly out of focus intentionally. My only excuse is that I was shooting on the run trying to get one last shot before Carlos got back on the band's bus to go back to the hotel after the sound check. (see earlier posts for more details) But what I really liked was how he smiled and opened his hand in greeting, he was generously acknowleding the homage this unknown photographer, just another fan, was paying him. He could have just as easily looked away or turned his back, but no, he smiled and waved, casting his good vibrations at the camera... Thank You Carlos for everything !

And if some of the music coming out of his guitar could be transformed into pure light, maybe, just maybe it might look something like this...
