CBSO (Central Birmingham Symphony Orchestra)in the words of TBK, ripped off star wars - and played the theme tune to a awesome firework display as part of the Saturday night closer - Classical Fantasia!
This weekend was Birmingham ArtsFest and a lovely man over at Flickr organised some Press/Media passes for the members of The Birmingham group.
We'd have access all weekend to most areas making it easier for us to take pictures and a meet had been arranged for the Sunday Afternoon.
I was unimpressed to say the least about the behaviour of some members of the group who thought as they had passes that manners didn't matter - knocking people out the way and rushing around with little regard to others and as for the meet HA!!
I'll stick with moblog all the way, they were elitists who played my lens is bigger than yours for the first 30 mins, No one bothered introducing themselves (too busy bragging about their cameras) and then once they'd all shown off their lenses, tripods,monopods etc they all disappeared into the crowd without a backwards glance to their "new member" and anyone who has met me knows I'm no wall flower. I had plenty of fun with TBK and James (photos to follow) but I was a little perturbed.
THANK YOU MOBLOG - You guys I've met have been awesome. We know there is fun in photography!
he spotted my camera and chose not to hang around!
...are they real "Orbs"
Friday night I went out with 3 of my friends to play Ghostbusters - An over
night ghost hunt to Derby Gaol. It was fun, spooky, fun, strange and
somewhat overwhelming. I know what I felt, I know what happened I also know
the reasoning so it's up to me to decide how much I read into it -
t was so very different to my first "hunt" in Dudley Castle so much more
hands on - and a lot more "interesting" I'll definitely be doing it again at
Ghost hunting in Derby Gaol by candlelight. Spooky. I'll post more photos when I get home in the morning. . . If I can stay awake.
