One can go out and sit around in a bar on a Friday night...or one can go out and photograph people sitting in bars on a Friday night. Although there is nothing better than sitting around with friends sampling the latest in micro brew, I have to admit I really enjoy heading out in the early evening with my camera in tow...especially an evening as nice as this one. There are at least a couple of shots here that qualify for my "Front Porch" series. Sadlack's Heroes is a Hillsborough watering hole/landmark that will soon be torn down to make room for a hotel. Many of my friends have performed there in the back porch area.
