the turn @ the webb institute/webbstock

What a great day this was! Sitting at an old beautiful mansion on the great lawn, listening to The Turn sing and play away with the sun shining down (you remember the sun, don’t you?) and taking fabulous pictures all afternoon? =happiness. My job rocks (pun intended)!

I had never heard of the Webb Institute either, but it turned out to be an awesome place. It’s a very small (something like 90 students total) 4 year college in Glen Cove, New York. It’s an old mansion that at the behest of the owner was turned into a ship building FREE university. Brian got himself a shirt with some other info on it above. So, they have “Webbstock” (ya know, instead of Woodstock) every year with a number of different bands preforming throughout the day and evening. The Turn was invited and therefore I was too.

First thing you see after pulling in thru the gates, and the only thing I could think of to say even though there was no one in the car but me was “honey, I’m home…”

The view from the inside out and the back, including the three tiered backyard overlooking the sound. Uh huh.

So, it’s a little nice there, huh? Pat and I walked around to check out the place and take some pictures while Brian restrung his guitar.

Then they played for two hours or so. Awesome, of course.

On the way to the place, I saw this old abandoned gas station/garage and after my eyes lighting up, of course I begged the boys if we could stop on the way back out for a quick shoot there. They agreed and I think they are glad they did. I am!!

Ok, there are too many amazing ones, that I NEED a copy of ALL.
I have to say the reflection ones are my fav, I still cannot believe that, from that first sunset picture that I saw of yours
it needs to be in the media, or gallery somewhere.
