  1. Your night shots are always simply great. This one's no exception. Two's a crowd, eh?

  2. No dufus, two's company and three's a crowd. I damn near went with that so I looked it up to be sure my memory hadn't failed me yet again. Aging sucks.

  3. Being behind rather than in the middle is the only comfortable place in a crowd. Super shot, Ziva.

  4. I think the other folks have lighters...at a concert. So there's more than three people there.

  5. I couldn't agree more, Cheryl. Plus, you get the best people shots when you're in the back or to the side. ;) Glad you liked the photo.

  6. Thanks, dufus. :) This is more of an implied crowd... there were a lot of people there, even though it might not be entirely obvious from the photo.

  7. Very good, Bryan, you get a cookie.

  8. Just one? I think you should send me a box. :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sure. Now where can I find a really tiny box....?

  10. You're cruel...even without the whip. :P

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hah, you have it all wrong.. I'm not cruel with the whip. In fact, I can be very, very nice..

  12. I'll have to take M's word for that. :)

  13. Amazing photo Lemmikki. Seriously amazing. Is there no end to your talents? 

    By the way, I finally got my picture posted, if you'd like to come back and see it.

  14. Once again your use of light and color have me amazed. I particularly like the light on the guys shoulder in the foreground. Awesome!

    This is a beautiful, dreamy photograph that also proves not everything has to be in focus to be meaningful or interesting. I love it. Wouldn't mind a print of it, in fact.

  16. Oh yeah, I love a blurry crowd! The blurrier the better, because it usually means I've consumed enough vodka to handle being IN a crowd!

  17. This reminds me of being stoned at a concert.  You've captured that beautifully for me.  Either that or being in a religious cult.  Sort of the same but different.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Aww, thank you, Nicky, you always say the sweetest things.

    I'll be right over! Oh, and I'm carrying my whip.

    ReplyDelete
  19.  Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it, it was a great place to take photos, the lights were just amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Awesome, now I know what to get you for your birthday.

    I'm really glad you liked the photo, Michael. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, it wasn't a religious cult, and I wasn't stoned, but it was indeed a concert, and maybe my camera was stoned?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Absolute class. The blurry background, the lights, the general framing and focus are spot on. 

    Wish my ear was smaller in the photo though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is beautiful. The blur is kind of how I've been seeing the world lately.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah, this challenge will do that to you..

    ReplyDelete
  25. I hate to tell you this, but your ears are only going to get bigger, they never stop growing. In a few years when I take that same photo, people will mistake you for Dumbo. Glad you liked the photo, though! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, well at least I'll get to fly and save on travel costs.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Alright you two.  Get a room already.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, that is really perfect, Ziva.  Truly. The glorious (and almost "purple") haze one feels when milling about in a concert crowd (with or without the "enhancements").

    (I can't really tell since his ears are about all I've ever seen of him, but isn't that CheesyMike in the foreground?)  ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, you made that photo beautiful yet sinister. Where were you? I think I want to be there.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I KNEW it!  I was going to ask if this shot was from the show you went to the other night.  The cigarette smoke combined with lights gives bar shots a certain look.  One, I've had lots of opportunities to shoot!

    ReplyDelete
  31. They look a little dodgy, don't they? ;) It was taken at a concert, it was a lot of fun, you should have been there!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I thought it was Mo? I have no idea anymore, all our blogger guys look the same to me.

    I'm glad you liked the photo. Oddly enough, "purple" really does describe that feeling you get at a concert with the lights and crowd and the general atmosphere..

    ReplyDelete
  33. There's something special about that 'bar look', isn't there? I love taking photos of it.
