Most folks are aware that pop superstar Elton John is on his final farewell tour with what could be his final album release on October 22nd. So, I decided to put together the video here which I muse to be an abstract of my visit to Oklahoma City in 1999 where I got to photograph Elton in concert at the Myriad.
I had been on a cross country sight seeing tour on Amtrak that included stops in Atlanta, DC, Chicago, New Orleans, Fort Worth and of course culminating in Oklahoma City. While in OKC I also visited the zoo and bombing memorial that was still under construction. McVeigh was in jail awaiting his execution at that time.
The video is my first attempt at creating a reel for Instagram which did very well and so I’m quite pleased with my creative effort. Although, I kinda wanted to spray some WD-40 on those squeeky train wheels.©2022 – Jim Casey
