Yesterday Cali and Neal took us to see Paul McCartney, because they are so nice! And it was a fantastic show. Sir Paul did a great job, and his band was excellent too. It’s amazing that a guy in his late 60’s has the energy to get up there and rock for a few hours. Though I’m sure he was making a MINT to do so! hehehe
Anyway, what we have here are a bunch of photos captured yet again with my little pocket Panasonic DMC-LX3 camera. It performed fantastically given that we were in row 39 and the lighting was very difficult for any camera, much less one I smuggled in my a pocket.
The Paul McCartney Concert Videos
Here are a couple of songs that Cali recorded on her Nokia N97 phone using the live streaming service Qik. She was uploading them during the concert when I turned off her phone accidentally. Luckily they were not lost!
Songs: Give Peace a Chance, Let It Be
Songs: Live and Let Die, Hey Jude
After she got those, she grabbed a couple with my Casio EX-FC100 in higher resolution.
Day Tripper and Lady Madonna
And in case you want to see what Lady Madonna used to look like when he performed it three decades ago here goes:
Well, here you go. A bunch of photos – despite the camera Nazis at the concert who kept telling people to stop taking pictures. Question: When in the hell are concert promoters going to stop this bullshit and start letting people take their big cameras and actually use them? If I were a singer I would WANT a billion high quality pictures of me flooding Flickr and the Internet tubes. Dumbasses. Anyway, on to the pics!
Full sized versions of these photos are, yet again, in one of my Flickr sets. Enjoy.
