we don’t need no education

The last four days have been the most hectic I’ve had in a while …

I shot Roger Waters on Wednesday night, then Thursday I shot my friend’s mom’s wedding. Friday I went to the best party I’ve ever been to (even though I’m not really a party animal) and Saturday I went to another party.

Roger Waters.

Honestly … he still has it.

I was never really a big Pink Floyd fan. I mean, I knew and loved their really big hits … like “Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Money,” etc … but I was always more into the more modern music scene like Korn and Slipknot.

But fuck.

This guy … as well as his entire stage band …

W-fucking-ow.

The whole concert was a light show …

As well as an amazing musical experience.

But that’s a given.

Seems like the light show bit is too.
Sorry Chris by the way. I’ll bring a nice 8×10 to school for ya. 😉

I mean … fuck. You’d think that at 60 something … he’d kinda “wear down” …

But no … he still had every bit of energy in him. He even had the typical Pink Floyd flying blown up pig.

Twas fucking cool. Also had a blown up astronaut.

And he cussed Dubya out in one of his songs! “Leaving Beirut” … an amazing song and performed even more amazingly. They had a cartoon drawn … cause it was written about an experience he had in Beirut … meeting with an Arabic family and how nice they were … that was going on at the backdrop, and the words in the cartoon were the lyrics to the song.

A-fucking-mazing.


He played a lot of amazing Floyd songs …

All the ones I knew too. 😉

It was pretty wicked seeing him perform Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2 … one of my old bands did a cover of that for fun. And my all-time favorite band, Korn, covered it too. And it was really cool to see all the old(er) people singing “Hey, teacher, leave us kids alone.”

You could see their “inner-child” as it were.

Anyways … the shooting process was pretty standard.

First three songs, no flash, from the pit. Twas good. Standard is good. 😉

I met a really fucking cool photographer … Richard … He had his F5 with him and a roll of black and white.

I thought that was cool.

And a guy from the Toronto Star was there … with whom I shot my first gig with ever … again, my all-time favorite band, Korn! It’s funny how the first “big” thing I shot was that of my favorite band.

Oh yeah, there were frequent explosions at the Roger Waters show. 😉

Very fucking cool.

It went very well … I was really happy with the concert.

Not only the “work” part of it …

But the actual concert … was FUCKING amazing.

Better than the Korn one.

That’s like a dagger in the heart to say. 😉

Haha just joking.

Anyways, I’m fucking tired … been resizing/editing the wedding photos for the past couple hours …

I’ll post some of them another time.

And this post doesn’t do justice to the show … it was FUCKING AMAAAAZING.

But I’m wayyy to tired.

So let the photos speak for my absence of words.
