This is Louanne and Jean Fugal, of Scio, Oregon. Along with fiddle player Robert Waterhouse, they make up the backbone of a musical group called “The Usual Suspects.” Other musicians play with the three from time to time, hence the name.

I took this shot while covering the Linn County Lamb & Wool Fair one year for the Scio News. Although I sent the photo in, along with many others to be considered, this wasn’t one that was published.

I like the lighting in this shot, the composition with the way Jean is leaning, and the passion and joy for music that shows on his and Louanne’s faces.
