In honor of the Rolling Stones kicking off their 2013 tour, thought I’d share my favorite images of them shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Leibovitz was named chief photographer of Rolling Stone magazine in 1973 and joined the band on their 1975 tour (can you imagine?). Mick Jagger and Keith Richards explained that after Annie hung out for a few days and photographed them, they forgot she was even there (the ideal for environmental portrait photography – my favorite style).
Below is the Rolling Stones clip from Leibovitz’s documentary, “Life Through a Lens.” I love Keith Richards giggling and saying “I don’t remember that!” when shown pictures of him.

We had a nice weekend. Straw was unfortunately not feeling great with a bad cough, but we still managed to make it in to San Francisco for a delicious dinner at Park Tavern and then drinks in North Beach. So many new, fun places down there to try (being out of the city for 11 years, I feel out of the loop). Went to a lovely BBQ with friends last night. Kids had a great time. The weather has been awesome.
Putting together a proposal this week for a personal photography project I want to get started on. Will fill you in once I hammer out some details.
Happy Monday! C
