If you've been following Guitar Chalk for any length of time, you'll notice we always put a banner photo at the top of all our articles.
90 percent of the time those banner photos come to us from a Flickr account run by a fella from Belgium, under the profile name "Kmeron."
We've been tremendously fortunate to have his photography as a resource for this site, as he's generously allowed us to use his photos and is continuously updating his Flickr feed with new images. To date, he's amassed 173,282 photos.
From time to time we figured it would be worthwhile to highlight some of our favorite material from him that we haven't used for our banner photos. This article is a roundup of those photos, though makes no guarantee that they won't show up in future Guitar Chalk content.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Frero Delavega soundcheck in Galaxie Amneville in France
The backdrop is really involved and seemed to be some kind of a nature theme. I'm surprised the guitar player even needs the pedalboard lights with all the other sparkly stuff going on.
L7 Concert at the Cabaret Vert Festival
This one is from a European music festival and the band is a female group called L7. The Gibson Flying V makes for a great look. Smoke and fancy lights help too.

Another shot from the same festival captures a great panoramic-style look at the entire band with the focal point on a pedalboard session, stage right (their right).
