Golden Gate Park Wedding: 1989

Just some Saturday in Golden Gate Park

I lived near Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach in San Francisco from 1984 to 1991 and then I had my own house on Bella Vista in Miraloma Park from 1991 to 1994 before moving to the East Bay (Lamorinda) where I’ve been ever since.

I didn’t touch the color scheme – its Kodachrome and I like the colors  quite a bit.

I was a little perplexed back then and still am as far as who was trying to be what fashion wise. Punk? New Wave? Hippy? Goth?

It didn’t matter then nor now, because they look like they were having fun and had the guts to do it at a bandstand in the park. My favorite character by far is the fellow officiating the ceremony.

I’ll write another post about the lap steel you hear in this song. I replaced the cheap pickup in the Recording King with a Seymour Duncan Phat Kat and WOW, just outstanding.
