Last night I drove to the Concord Pavilion for a concert. I almost didn't go (because I almost forgot that I had tickets). Once I remembered that I had tickets, I almost didn't make the 45 minute trip from Oakland to Concord. I was lazy.... Fortunately, I went. I saw Bryan Adams. It was the third time I saw him. (The first time I have seen him since the 1980's.) I also saw someone else for the third time yesterday.

I saw this guy yesterday.
The last time I saw him was the Summer of 2010. I was in Mountain View, California walking into a music fair so that I could photograph Heart, Miranda Lambert and a few other well known women musicians.
Here is a photograph from the Lilith Fair 2010. I also wrote about him in a blog post called Not Just Another Manic Monday. (I wrote the blog post; Prince wrote the song Manic Monday.) I also photographed these protesters at the Tim McGraw Concert in May 2010.
I was actually glad to see him again, not because I agree with him, but because he is enthusiastic. He is the first one to tell you through his megaphone. Yesterday, he said "my path drips with enthusiasm." He didn't even go to the concert, as far as I know, and he was more excited than I was. Why was I bothered about traffic and long lines?
