You are my muse

DSC00566

In December I went to the Muse concert in Amsterdam, the show was amazing and as cameras were allowed I thought that I would try out my (then) new toy – a Sony RX100 compact camera.

It’s certainly compact, and has the advantage of living in my handbag (which my DSLR can’t ;p) but has a sensor size 1″ across – not far off of the same size as a cheaper DSLR. ย And it shows in the low light shots that you can get with it!

  1. Great photo as always, Stace. Unfortunately, cameras were *not* allowed when I saw them back in April. It was still an amazing show, though, which is all that really matters. :c)

    • Thanks Cass! This has to be my favourite from the night.

      I think the concert I went to was part of the arena tour to make sure that the set worked before setting off on the world stadium tour ๐Ÿ™‚

      The cameras do detract from the experience – either because all you can see is the sea of phones taking pictures (I didn’t see that many people with actual cameras) or because you are trying to get the shot, and not listening. One of the reasons I don’t have that many shots from the night – I was too busy listening ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Listening, you say? What an odd thing to want to do at a concert! lol

        I saw Jeff Tweedy from Wilco play a solo show in Seattle once, and he was clearly baffled by why people were doing everything *except* listening. The next night, in Portland, he literally asked the crowd to join him in a moment to simply be. Together. It was, by all accounts, quite powerful.

        There’s a film of that tour, Sunken Treasure: Live in the Pacific Northwest. It’s well worth a look if you are a fan of Wilco. Or just great songwriting. :c)
