Jimi Hendrix at The Isle of Wight, August 1970, by Chris Walter.

btw, you need to be more familiar with this amazing festival than you probably are. Here’s how just the second half of Sunday went: Donovan (who did both acoustic and electric sets), Pentangle, The Moody Blues, Jethro Tull, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Leonard Cohen, and Richie Havens.

“I don’t know how long I was there before I sensed that someone was coming up from behind. I turned my head away from the viewfinder just long enough to get a glimpse of a guy walking slowly towards me. I went back to taking pictures of ducks but in a split second it registered that the guy was Bob Dylan. Why I didn’t freak I don’t know. But I didn’t. Then, this guy, Bob Dylan, sits down on the ground next to me and asks me what I’m doing. Seemed pretty obvious to me but I told him I was taking pictures of ducks.” [x]
