Jerry Garcia Memorial, Piedmont Park, Atlanta 1995

The crowd at dusk

A shot from early in the gathering, and two from just before I left. The couples were part of a knot of people around a candle-laden little shrine, listening to the Grateful Dead's cover of the Traffic classic "Dear Mr. Fantasy." By this time I was singing along.

As I was heading up the street back to my car, I heard someone up on the roof of one of the apartments. He had an amp and an acoustic guitar, serenading the crowd with some Grateful Dead tunes. A nice coda to the evening, that.
