Fall Foto Favorites 2008 - IBMA Fan Fest Friday

This is the second of a series of posts seeking to capture the highlights of our Fall tour. During the IBMA Fan Fest, really a large, indoor festival, I was lucky enough to have Carl Jackson ask me to take pictures back stage. This gave me unusual access and opportunities to take some unusual pictures. Most of these are not images I used before, but, when I looked back at the archives for October, I found my eye seemed to pick out some of the same photos I had posted earlier. I'll let them run again, because I think they're worth a second look. Have a good time.
