One week ago from right now I was tired and my body was sore.

Just as I had done in past years, I once again volunteered to be an Ichthus photographer at this year’s Ichthus music festival in Wilmore, Kentucky (USA).

This year I wasn’t able to take photos of the entire three-day event because I was out of town the first two days attending a technology conference in Pennsylvania. But, I did spend the third day out at the festival grounds taking photos for about 10 hours.

It was more difficult to get into it this year since I missed the beginning. But, by the end I was back in the groove and ended up taking over 4,000 photographs.

You can always count on Toby Mac jumping off stage and leaping into the audience. He does that every year.

After Toby Mac played then Switchfoot hit the stage. They did a great job.

And that is just a sample of seven pictures of the 4,200 pics I got. But, you get the idea.

Great blog. You going to be at Ichthus this year 2008?

It looks like I will be there on staff at the Deep End Stage. I’m looking to round up photogs for a meet and greet.
