The Players

Friends invited me to attend Spirit West Coast at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in 2008. I couldn’t guess what to expect—and, whoa, what a surprise. The atmosphere felt good and the overall ambience refreshed and enlivened. Christian musicians. Families. Young adults. All having fun at a festival where there was no alcohol or illegal substances. I was surprised. Transfixed.

I attended the following year, too. But those days are gone. The music festival no longer comes to San Diego County.

I used the Nokia N95 8GB cameraphone to capture the Featured Image, of three attendees providing some additional entertainment. Vitals: f/2.8, ISO 100, 1/200 sec, 5.6mm; 3:32 p.m. PDT, May 24, 2008.
