Photo Hunt - Entertainment





The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is entertainment. In the absence of new photos here are some concert photos of my favourite musician Robyn Hitchcock



This is Robyn performing Airscape, the nearest thing the not-wife and I have to an "our song"




And this is Madonna of the Wasps (it gets started proper at around 1 minute), The nearest thing I have to a repeatable nickname for the not-wife!



But she calls me Balloon Man.. Damn I need to lose weight!

Great shots. Music is at the top of the pile as far as entertainment goes, for sure.

That funny photo of Ted ignoring the comic would work for this theme too. :) I have a tuxedo cat too, named Maria.

Have a good weekend.

The top shot is fantastic! And they're all great entertainment.

The Riverbum said...

Nice set of photos. And what an interesting collection of printed shirts that he has!

I went a totally different direction with my "entertainment" photo. Maybe I am just easily entertained?

Thanks everyone!

bonggamom said...

Great post, Jams! It looks like you got some nice, close shots of your favorite musician (which is usually difficult to do when everyone is dancing and jostling for position near the front!).

Unknown said...

I don't know much about his music but I love his shirts, especially the ones in the first three pictures.
