Happy Made in America. I wasn’t there this year to shoot the best fashions, so I scoured social media to find them. There wasn’t a lot of photos of people, but there was a lot of photos of acts on stage.
And Beyonce with JayZ
And Bill Clinton with fans, including notable Richard Bush, lead singer of my fav 80s band – The A’s
I scoured the internet for about two days, and this is all I came up with. Maybe people didn’t know what the hashtag was, or just didn’t post selfies. I saw a lot of musicians on stage though.
Malia Obama stole the show

Rahel Solomon, Melony Roy and Brook Thomas all of CBS3 Philly
This year I wasn’t credentialed to shoot the event as there was a huge demand from around the world. I did get offers to shoot it after the initial turn down, but decided to go away instead and Mike was very happy about the vacation. Budwesier also invited me to be their guest, and bring a guest, but Mike was not up for the 8 – 10 hr day he’d have to endure with me cause I like to be there for most of the time (FOMO – LOL). Even though I had a great vacation, and saw things that were on my summer bucket list, I really missed it, the people, all the fun things to see, the music, but most importantly that it happens right here Philly. See you next year, Bud!! (BTW it’s hell living on the Parkway after MIA completes too, it’s actually worse since everyone is back from the shore. Do yourself a favor, do not drive near the Parkway for another week.)
