Bluegrass and Monochrome

The third of four Friday live music concerts filled Old Trolley Barn Park this evening in my San Diego neighborhood of University Heights. Bluegrass greeted descending dusk as I arrived packing Leica Q2 Monochrom. I captured crowd shots—three, and share two.

As an afterthought, I pulled out iPhone 13 Pro for a single color composition, which I chose for the Featured Image. Vitals: f/2.8, ISO 200, 1/99 sec, 77mm; 7:37 p.m. PDT.

In the first of the black-and-white pair, the woman with glasses to the left is the same wearing light tie-dye. The color definition is lost in monochrome and what prompted me to share the smartphone photo, too. Vitals: f/4.5, ISO 200, 1/250 sec, 28mm; 7:37 p.m.

The last of the set shows the massive crowd sprawled out towards the playground. Vitals: f/4, ISO 200, 1/160 sec, 28mm; 7:33 p.m.
