Arizona Trip

Every year my girlfriend likes to go somewhere warm in the winter months. Something to look forward to during the cold crappy months. Since she works for Hyatt we get to stay in some really nice places for free or significantly reduced costs meaning we’re fortunate enough to travel a little more often than most folks.

This winter we went down to Arizona for a few days. We mostly just hung out at the pool and ate fattening food so I didn’t take many photos but we did go on an adventure one day. Here’s a few photos

The Dillinger Escape Plan In Lawerence

The Dillinger Escape Plan has always been one of my favorite bands. Largely because you can’t really pin their music down. In a single album it could go from an eclectic mathy-noise-metal song into a piano ballad with a string section. Along with that their live shows are absolutely explosive. A few friends of mine decided they were gonna head down to see the show and asked if I wanted to take the empty seat they had in their car. There wasn’t a snowballs chance in hell that I’d ever miss an opportunity to see this band play live, especially now that they’ve announced they’ll be taking an indefinite hiatus after their next tour.

One thing a lot of people don’t know about me is that I tend to have a rather eclectic taste in music, mostly gravitating towards heavier music. Often times people are surprised that I stand up front at crazy concerts and take pictures, purely for the fun of it. Maybe it’s because I enjoy the music, maybe because after shooting hundreds of concerts if there isn’t a chance for personal injury it just isn’t as fun, really it’s probably both. Regardless, taking photos at Heavy Metal and Hardcore punk concerts will always be one of my favorite things to do. Here’s a few photos from the show:
