the 60s

Daytona Beach HippieFest #3

“Don’t gain the world & lose your soul,
Wisdom is better than silver or gold.”
― Bob Marley

This is the third and final post to feature photos from the 2014 Daytona Beach HippieFest, held this past Sunday. I played around a bit with a couple of the photos in this post, giving them a more vintage, 60’s feel. Or, such was the intent. It’s been groovy sharing these photos from the event with you. Peace.

Are you pictured here? Contact me via email and let me know which photo; I’ll send you back the full-sized HD version.

Cool shades

This guy was very popular. What you don't see is the other half of a situation I'll probably never be in again: At my back is a police officer and my face to a guy yelling "Free pot!". Fortunately, the cop had both a sense of humor and the ability to read.

Sometimes abstracts just happen, so you go with them...

This happened after I ran into the guy with the free pot… 🙂

Today I am sharing more photos from my trip to the Daytona Beach HippieFest, held this past Sunday. (If you didn’t see the first batch, they were in yesterday’s post. I will share the last batch tomorrow.) I hope you enjoy them.

Imagine if there had been phone cameras in the 60s. Subsequent generations of children would have had an entirely different concept of their parents. Be warned.

These two were having fun and enjoying the music.

A downpour didn't dampen spirits, but some tie-dye got a bit of an extra rinse.

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
— Jimi Hendrix

Yesterday, I drove to Daytona Beach to attend HippieFest. This was my first time attending, but I don’t think it will be my last. I had a ball taking photos of people and they seemed to be really into it. I will share some photos from the day over the next two or three blog posts. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

I never did catch the name of the local group that played first; they were excellent, though!

Local band Tie-Dye Road; I really enjoyed this band. You can find them on Facebook.
