I was on the lookout for people with character. I saw this woman standing out of the crowd in front of the OARC stage on day 1. On stage the Rising Star talent search was going on. With tattoos covering her crossed arms, this woman was enjoying every second of Charissa the Violin Diva’s performance. Through the years I have learned that an image capturing the moment often happens off-stage rather than on-stage – a festival is about it’s attendants rather that the performers.
