Smiling dancer at Moontribe

Recently I gave myself the chance to immerse myself in photography while camping with several hundred of my closest friends. Our community, Moontribe, celebrated its 18th year of existence with a joyous festival of a Full Moon gathering. Dancing, reconnecting with old friends, making some new ones, cooking up a storm, lounging in the sunshine…it was all there. This is our church in a way, and I can’t think of anyplace I’d rather be.

 

Usually I’m behind the decks as a DJ, as well as an organizer, but this time I took a break from the music world and instead used my lenses to capture people on the dancefloor, in their moments of bliss, the kind that make me smile in recognition and inspiration. I’ve posted a photoset on Flickr in case you’re curious. I hope you enjoy.

Saturday afternoon groovin & chillin. Photo by Tedd St. Rain. Well now, wasn’t that amazing/crazy cool/super-fun.

I had a tremendously good time playing for a smiling crowd of friends, fans, and fellow chillophiles on Saturday afternoon of the Lightning in a Bottle festival on the Woogie Stage. Good, deep fun.

I’ve been told my set was recorded so I am eagerly awaiting a copy of the set so I can get it mastered and posted for your listening and grooving pleasure. Stay tuned! Hopefully this will be happening shortly.

Big thanks to Jesse Wright & Sammy Bliss of Pocket Underground for inviting me to play, and of course to the magical manifesters on the team of the Do Lab for producing such a memorable event. I hope to be back in years to come!
