Friday night with… Sparks. (Well they were on “Friday Night with Jonathan Ross” at the same time as being on stage in Kentish Town.
A great theatrical opening (I wonder if Tescos have had their shopping trolleys returned) followed by a strong performance. Sounded great and the enthusiastic crowd loved every minute.
Yet again the 3 song rule comes into play, but boy what 3 songs! (Altough they were a little short for my liking). Only by the end of the third was I satisfied that I have enough “in the bag”. Once I am happy I have enough, I really start playing with different lenses etc. but of course, taking all 3 songs ment I did not have time for any really whacky perspectives. However, that said, I am, really happy with what I have filed this morning and am fairly sure it will stand up well against the “opposition” 😉 . 3 Songs means you get to see 3 samples, I hope you like them;
Well, I have (just about) fixed the laptop and have a system on which I can process as I leave the site. Its not complete (colour proflies, printers etc) so it is going to be a long weekend.
Gosh, what a day! I must admit, I was looking forward to this premiere; I had never seen Julia Roberts before and was keen to get some nice images of her. I think she has a classic face – in the 1960’s / 50 vain.
Saturday night – Level 42 at the Indigo O2. A great “little” venue inside the O2 dome. I say “little” as it still holds some 2400 peeps. I arrived about 5 minutes before the band went on; not due to “coolness” but due to traffic. New rule; Do not visit IKEA before a gig!
I must admit, Shannon is a good looking guy with a nice voice. The Boarderline is a nice intimate club and the atmosphere was good too. Apart from that I could not tell you much as I tend to miss everything else when photographing – I don’t have a clue which songs he performed.
Yesterday it was off to Berlin for a quick meeting… out on the late Sunday, meeting all day, back on the late Monday. Really tiring; at least I did not have to drive to and from the airport.
