Default Willie Nelson at Luck Reunion

I'm going to attempt to share a few images harvested from last week in Spicewood.

Here's the one...

Willie Nelson by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Trigger

Purchased sight unseen for $750 after a drunk stepped on his old one at Floore's Country Store in 1969.

This is where it went down...

Willie's ranch was used to film Red Headed Stranger so much like the terlingua ghost town, there are quite a few structures that are perfect for photography. Only problem is I was there to shoot video so my nikon was in the truck most of the time. These are just a few shots that were gleaned along the way.

the chapel

If the left handed cigarette ever becomes legal, Willie is well positioned to take advantage of that.

Willie Nelson-4 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

This is Willie's private outdoor stage during set up. Pretty cool thing to have in your yard.

Willie Nelson-5 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

During the reunion, there were a lot of vendors selling eclectic wares. This is one of many.

Willie Nelson-7 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Airstreams were popular.

Willie Nelson-9 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

The adult beverages were part of the ticket price. While open bars are tempting, we had work to do so we sampled lightly.

Willie Nelson-10 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Willie's mike stand has picks that say "Roll Me Up". I have a feeling his song, "Roll me up and smoke me when I die" will become a reality some day.

Willie Nelson-12 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

This one's kind of blurry but I like the sly grin. Besides, a little blur softens wrinkles.

Willie Nelson-13 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Classic B&W

Willie Nelson-15 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

At 83, Will likes the crowd to do some of the singing.

Willie Nelson-16 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

One of numerous art installations on the property.

Willie's son Lukas. He's the next generation Willie that will carry the torch. He can sing exactly like his dad.

Bass player with the Luck logo.

Willie Nelson-19 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Another of Lucas Nelson

Lukas Nelson-21 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Lukas has a throwback style that is a little dated but hey, he comes by it honest. At one point he played with his teeth.

Here's one from distance with a pole in the way but I still like it since it shows more Willie.

Willie Nelson-24 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Crowd shot

Willie Nelson-25 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Taking off the cowboy hat and switching to bandanna mode. It was a nice feel good moment.

Black and White in full bandanna

Willie Nelson-29 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

The voice sometimes struggles but Trigger still does what she is asked.

Willie Nelson-31 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

National treasure.

Willie Nelson-32 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Love him or hate him, he's still a legend.

Willie Nelson-33 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

Hopefully he's with us a long time.

Willie Nelson-35 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

See ya Willie. It was a fun time.

Willie Nelson-36 by Steven Leggett, on Flickr

I still have more to edit. I guess I better get back to it.
