Jacob's Ladder 2010

Somehow I completely spaced on the fact that I needed to get my
Ruby Tuesday post up this evening (I'm blaming it on the lovely cold Madame Butterfly gave me). Luckily this weekend's festival provided some options, even if you do have to look a bit to find some of the reds.
Henri's Notions, this year's headlining act
A bunch of folks dancing on the roof of the nearby bathroom building(!)
as the band played the final song of the weekend

while said friend was getting ready to perform


here for more information about the always wonderful Jacob's Ladder Festival. In fact, why don't you grab a few folding chairs and come join us next year?
My photography is now available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!
If the photo you're wishing for is something you've seen here on the blog which isn't in my etsy shop yet just let me know and I'll happily list it for you.

Neat photos of the festival, Robin! I'm intriged by the way the fiddler's shirt flows into the mural. :)

Mojo said...

I know about that "completely spacing" thing. I've done it several times recently.

Glad you recovered your senses though because this is some damned fine work.

What a lot of eneergy in the second photo.
Any reason why the festival is called Jacob's ladder?

Robin said...

That's wild about the fiddler's shirt, isn't it. It was complete coincidence, I didn't notice it until much later.

You can learn more about the festival's name (and history) here :).

Beautiful shots. They are really having good time.

Dina said...

Love that middle photo. Dancing on the WC roof, eh? LOL

The Jacob's ladder festival seems to have been great fun and ditto music.
I do remember Jacob's dream about climbing a ladder, but can't quite see the connection to the festival.

I do have a great fascination for Jacob, he was human and hand strong good and less good sides.
When he did fight with the angel at proclaimed he would not let him go until the angel gave him his blessings; that was brave and pure.

When I get rich I will have a spring vacation in Israel. Must be great to be there when it's still winter in Norway.

Just visiting from Ruby Tuesday! I would love to visit Israel someday. I don't know if I'll get to or now. It seems like a dream right now.~ The festival looks like a lot of fun!

Ralph said...

Everybody is enjoying the festival, some more than others as they feel the energy of the music - and act appropriately! A day of fun and frivolity, and often we need days like this...

I love the fiddler's shirt coincidence.

I do feel the energy of the rooftop dancers! Wonderful shot.

Lesa said...

Wow-- those dancers look like a living sculpture! I like the splashes red here and there. And the fiddler's shirt does look spacey against the backdrop. Cool!

Great pots for TR:)/Maria
