Polka, beer, etc

I was thinking last night when Robert was telling me a UFO story that we don't spend much time looking at the sky anymore.

I realized I also have not put many new photos on here in a while, not that I have not been shooting.

In this photographic fantasy, some youngsters are out and they end up in a Polka bar with a bunch of more mature patrons and a band anchored by an expressive accordion player.
Going along with that theme, I created a series of photobooth shots to accompany:
