The camera work was tricky...no permission and the ushers were constantly creeping along the aisles to tell people no pics....they never caught me but we were 2nd row centre and with no centre aisle it was difficult for them to get to me....my camera is somewhat bulky so it was risky....but I am glad I took the chance....lolDick wrote:Thanks for the great reports and pics...

Did you have any special permissions for camera Chris?
Understand how wonderful that thrill was for you Mirka. Congrats.
one way to get some pics was to wait until a standing ovation (there were several) and just stand and click away as noone was watching at that time....I actually taped the song "Ring the bells" holding the camera at my shoulder to conceal it, but couldn't see the viewfinder so all I got was the audio showing the backdrop curtains as I didn't have it aimed right.... it was too risky to hold it up to get the framing right....oh well.........seems some folks are able to get some pretty good pics in spite of the ushers....I can understand why they wouldn't want flash photography (I would never use it) as it is very disruptive....I suppose once you say it's alright to take pics then you know the flashes will be going off all the time....part of crowd control and to try and give the audience the best experience possible....I respect that..specially with an artist of Leonards stature.....
