Pictures from Milford

Milford was a fabulous show, especially when the lovely Karla and Melba of the Guevara clan came out with their men, Mark and Vincent, respectively, in tow. Day one was painfully, painfully windy, but day two was as close to perfect as I've ever seen. Here are a few shots of the new setup!

Come see it all in person next week in Orange!
