The ticket said no professional camera’s and no detachable lenses. Uhoh.. I decided to take my chances and hide my camera in a scarf and raincoat (much needed..) While wearing my compact camera as a decoy around my neck, miling at the lady who was searching my bag: ”There is really no alcohol in there.” At least I didn’t lie.
The show looked and sounded amazing, I was a little disappointed by the fact that almost all of it were songs from the new album. I did hope for a bit more older songs. During the first song out in the rain we heard a snappy command for a raincoat but luckily she ignored the pouring rain later on.
There were plenty of costume changes, the lighting and the video’s shown in the back ground were amazing.
Even though I have a terrible cold and my jacket is still drying, I love the way the rain shows up in the pictures!
I am always a little mesmerized by people smoking. Don’t ask me why. I don’t smoke myself and it smells bad (unhealty, expensive bla bla bla.. I know ) These pictures are from a warm Sunday in spring. I was back home and there was a fair in my home town. That usually means that we will end up at our favorite bar having a few glasses of wine talking to nice people you don’t see often enough.
The girl in the pictures is my Cousin, Marlieke. I think she is a pretty smoker ;)
Yes, I found myself semi-drunk on a toilet in a certain venue around Dublin on a Saturday night and I happened to carry my camera when I noticed the walls of the toilet stall.
As a kid we all learn that it is a bad thing to write on walls that are not yours (including your mom’s walls I believe) but these women decided to keep a diary on the wall here. I’m really not sure why?
On Friday night we went to see Paul Simon in the O2 here in Dublin. It took a little persuading from my side to get my boyfriend to join me. Have to admit, we certainly lowered the average age in the venue for the night.
Even though it was a very (maybe a little bit too much) calm night, audience and performance I enjoyed the concert. Below some photo’s and two video’s I took. They aren’t my best, but they are the best I could manage from way up the tribune with a zoom lens and a very high iso.
I guessed that zooming this much would make the handheld video’s a bit wobbly and it did but the sound is pretty good so I uploaded them anyway! The video was shot with my Canon EOS 500D.
I loved the light falling in the small building here. When actually standing there and taking the picture I had some difficulties with visualizing the light bundle in the picture. In the end, my mom stood to my right and blew some smoke into the light. Successfully!
The things that go down on the Irish countryside.. Roadtrips never get boring!
We were driving through Connemara and on our way home we were compelled to stop after seeing signs for a ‘Sheep Race’ taking place that day. I’ve been to the horse races and the dog track around Dublin but this was new to me.
