The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 5 February 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

This is not a photo of the blues duo that call themselves the Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer. This is a photo of Current Swell, who headlined the show the aforementioned act opened for. I did not get a decent shot of them, but thought a tribute was necessary, so have a listen... they are pretty rad. A white boy singing with soul and a drumming guitar player. And don't worry, Current Swell is coming up!

Abena from Illinois, United States

Brilliant yellow light there. I don't know why but I really like the look of the back of the guy/girls head popping out at the front left, right under the singer standing with a mike. I love this shot, it's awesome and current swell is pretty awesome too :)

6 Feb 2013 1:27am

@Abena: Thanks for the comment and for sharing that :-) I always love the "in the moment" shots... where you get most of what you sort of seeing at the time but a few hidden gems, too. For me it was the wisps of hair on the far right.

L'angevine from Angers, France

super la teinte jaune

6 Feb 2013 8:37am

@L'angevine: Merci :-)

Basile Pesso from Paris, France

@Mooie : yes, they are very good, rhythmically, powerfully, and with a great mastering of their live sound !

11 Feb 2013 5:30pm

@Basile Pesso: That was fast! They were pretty magical live... I'm bummed I didn't get a good image of them. Oh well... sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment and not worry about capturing it.
