Polish Hill Arts Festival photos — part 1

There were a lot of great photos from this very hot, fun, and exhausting day, so this is the first of two installments.

Here’s Elias Khouri and his dad Najeeb.  Elias just turned 14 and has been playing guitar for a year and a half.  This was his first public performance, and he’s pretty amazing.
