Dusty Santamaria

I got to know Dusty when David Acevedo lived with him in the house at 10th and Oak(some wild times - I have photos). Since then we have been on quite a few road trips together, and he has been working very hard on his music (and reading a lot, listening to music, and stealing everything he can) (he just said he has 75 songs now).

Friday night he did a show at the Sidedoor. After, he couldn't stop playing, brought out his guitar and played a new song. I hit record on my camera and this is what I got. Gaylin dancing along, Walt playing harmonica in the background, an artist friend of Dusty's leaning against the wall. I could use a better camera, but I work with what I have. The light was dim, colors turned out all red, so I brought it into photoshop and turned it in to black and white (and the quality is not good, it's just not as bad as it was before) I do like it though, nice feel, I think I caught the moment. A last winter night in Portland, before Dusty heads back to New Orleans.
