New Favourite Photo!

I went out after dark last night for the first time in a long time. To the UNE Bistro in Armidale to see my besties DS play with his band 'Watussi'. I knew they were good, I had heard a little online and was aware that they were on their way to Brisbane to back up Santana! I love the rhythms in Columbian music and there is something so sexy about singing in Spanish, I probably well needed a good dance, and I was hanging to take some gig-pix, it's been decades!
The venue was dead when us oldies arrived, way too early, at 9.30pm. The back-up band still had an hour before going on and Watussi would be on an hour after that. In the break I moved up to a good spot at the front of the mosh-pit. I was in heaven amid the swinging bodies and arms, swaying plastic mugs of piss, pushing and shoving excitement of youth in celebration of music, sex, alcohol and hormones. I had a camera for armour and surprisingly the kids respected it. A handful wanted me to take their photo, it was easier to say yes than try to explain that they would probably never see it. I uploaded a couple to the uni's FB page but it doesn't look a very frequented place.
So this is where my most recent favourite photo came from...... It was a great night, a night I am thankful for regardless of only having managed 4 1/2 hrs sleep followed by a long and busy day......
