The King of Blues by icoman The King of Blues by icoman
So, yes.. B.B. King was on my city here in Brazil...
and I DO like Blues.. could no miss the chance to check him out.

I got my camera, that is a little bit "fancier" than regular digital ones and said it was for the Journal...
Well.. they bought it for like.. 2 minutes, and that's when I took this picture.
after that they asked for a ID.

Oh well...

It was great nonetheless.

It's a really good photo. i like it, but, just a suggestion, you may want to crop it so that the other guys face isn't there. If u wanted you could make a completely new picture for him. I just think it looks a little odd there; kinda takes away from the main focus.

I like this shot, though I think he's very very overrated.. not to mention the fact that he played with Eric Clapton (who is a total travesty to the blues, tsk, tsk)...

B.B. King... =D I'd luv the picture even if it was horrible... which its definitly NOT. Very nice, it has a sort of "bluesy" feel... the black and white probably helped a bit. :giggle:

wow. I like thae way you think of it...
The man behind him is really a great musician, and BB King pays a los of respect to him, they are together for 40 years, already.
Cool huh?!
thanks!
