COOL ! And a great picture too ! Great to hear there were 1200 people there to pay hommage to the Big Jimi !!



I really like this forest of guitars! I have a feeling that even though it would be fun to be at, this would be a hard event to photograph well. You found a good moment to shoot, with people's movement showing lots of energy (making up for the energy of the music, which we can't hear in a photograph).

I wish I'd been there to hear them play. Although with 1,200 people playing Hey Joe at the same time I probably could have heard them over here in Toronto if I'd listened carefully. Thanks for showing me this great event (I'd never heard of this record before).


P.S. It doesn't matter that you guys didn't break the Guiness record... Jimi wouldn't care.

Well you didn't win the Guiness record, but it looks like everybody had fun, and that's the main thing. I like the horizontal composition and the colours are nice and bright. Well done.

I love this photo.
This is the only photo i can imagin being able to tell this cool story.

Nice event documentary picture.
Hope you will win the Guiness next year
