Prospect Mountain High School auditorium.

Mixed Choir & Alumni Sing.


As is my wont and weakness I focus — quite literally — on Devanee, though in this case I did do a few pan-outs and also tried to capture Ben Cookinham, particularly during his solo, because he is Devanee’s boyfriend and I kind of like him (though, of course, the two do not necessarily go hand in hand).

The two videos filmed with my Panasonic Lumix FZ1000.

These were the third set of videos I have shot with this camera, these, the concert the week before, being the first.

I didn’t have the time to set any video-related settings. So these were shot in ‘auto’ mode using the default settings.

Don McLean, Mr. American Pie, July 4, 2013 At Portland, ME, ‘Stars and Stripes Spectacular’.

Click for the videos of Don McLean from Portland.



Don McLean (67), who now lives in Camden, ME (a delightful locale, for sure), sang ‘Vincent’ and ‘American Pie’, in two separate slots at the Portland spectacular last night.

He was brilliant. You could feel his presence. Gave me goosebumps when he started singing ‘American Pie’ — one of my all time favorites. Yes, of course, his voice is a bit raspy and the ‘so so‘ sound system made his guitar a tad too raspy. But it was still brilliant. He held an estimated 30,000(+) crowd transfixed, bar Teischan, who chose the middle of ‘American Pie’ to demand that she had to be taken to the porta potty! ‘American Pie’, obviously, does not resonate with 7 year olds though she likes music and apple pie.

We are delighted that we went. It really was a spectacular. Thank YOU, Portland. We will be back next year. If you can get Don to come back that would be real special.

Alton (NH) July 3, 2013 Fireworks: An Impressive Finale, Much Appreciated, Makes It All Worthwhile.

3/ Alton & Wolfeboro 2013 fireworks … — June 19, 2013.


The Alton, NH, July 3, 2013, fireworks, as is so often the case these days with local shows, redeemed itself and sent the crowds home happy thanks to an impressive finale.

Overall it was ‘OK’. Bit listless and lacking in any ‘Ooomp‘ to begin with. We only heard one ‘WOW‘ prior to the finale.

As ever we were on the bridge, straight across from the fireworks. The barge seemed a tad further out than normal. Prior to the finale there wasn’t many body thumping bangs. It was pretty quiet. So much so that people were talking during the fireworks. Right then and there I came up with a rule-of-thumb. At ‘good’ fireworks people don’t talk and moreover it is hard to hold a conversation.

The fireworks started at 9:22 and finished at 9:37. So 15 minutes on the clock. There was a nice touch at the end. They did a white fireworks ‘curtain’ to finish and then the barge lit up with multicolored lights. That was cute.

You can see the boat traffic in the pictures. It wasn’t heavy. Steve Parker of the eponymous marina in Alton Bay chatted with us prior to the start. He was commenting that 20 years ago the bay used to be packed.

There was a fair crowd. I think, but I could be wrong, that it was a bit lighter than the ‘norm’. We got there around 8:35 and parking was not a problem. We park on the steep hill going down to the bay and ew had no problem parking very close to the bay.

People seemed to have fun. I think everybody was so glad that it had stopped raining.
