“I take it not only a day at a time, but a moment at a time, and keep it at that pace. If you can be happy right now, then you’ll always be happy, because it’s always in the now.” -Willie Nelson

"When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around."
-Willie Nelson

The guy on the right with the electric guitar is Willie's 21 year old son, Lukas Nelson, a fabulous musician in his own right.

Please bear with me on these….know the quality isn’t what it could be. All shots were taken from my seat in an upper row of the second level of the arena and quite a long way from the stage. Was handholding my Canon Rebel Xti with Sigma 70 – 300mm lens which was maxed out!

????? I hear he can still play a mean guitar! didnt he just come out with a new album? cool shots my friend!

lookagain Yeah....check out his old worn guitar. He named it "Trigger" and it's been with him for forty years. Never realized his awesome instrumental skills until I saw him in person....amazing talent...

smbunation Wow. No need to to bear with, these are excellent, Marsha. Thanks for the extra trivia on 'Trigger' too. Great fun.

Very well done Marsha!

????? · 2010-04-24: 17:36
jennye Wow, these are excellent Marsha!!!
jennye · 2010-04-24: 18:26
Jarvo I think these are great shots Marsha. #4 in particular looks a real professional job. Great quotes too - especially the one about always being happy now.
Jarvo · 2010-04-24: 19:07
leocheung You've done an excellent job and it must be an amazing experience seeing Willie Nelson live on stage !
leocheung · 2010-04-24: 23:26
Jannie The funny thing is that we are watching Willie right this minute on Austin City Limits! Too funny! These are great shots, especially the first one. It's hard to capture stuff like this, with the distance & the bad lighting. So many concerts don't allow you to bring in cameras, lucky you to be able to take some shots!
Jannie · 2010-04-25: 02:34
miltonjacob lovely set. considering the conditions (the distance, the lack of enough light, hand-held zooming etc), these are wonderful
miltonjacob · 2010-04-25: 06:26
agandia Very nice, I like Willie Nelson!!
agandia · 2010-04-25: 17:12
