Saturday Night Fun

This image was taken last night at an event in London that I have wanted to go to for a very long time. It was even more amazing than I had imagined it might be and I have some photos I think you are going to enjoy later and maybe a bit of video too.

I snapped the photograph above of John after dark with my new camera. That’s right … my new camera! John gave me a Canon G11 for my birthday. Can you believe it? What a sweetheart thing to do. I’m still learning how to use it, but I have already taken about 3000 photographs since opening it on Friday. I am editing the Saturday photographs down to a more reasonable level and should have them up tomorrow.

Can anyone guess where we might be  …

  1. Well it could be an open air concert in London! Hope wherever it is you had an awesome time. 3000 photos , you must of had your finger snapping all the time 🙂

  2. I know were you were so I won’t spoil the guessing fun…but man, that is a nice shot…I heard that camera gets great reviews and I’m looking forward to seeing it in real life. Hope you had a terrific time at your event 😛 ))).

  3. Thames River Festival? If I am right I have google to thank, because from the pic I had no idea but when I googled the date and London it came up with the festival. Great photo of John.

  4. Fabulous choice! Canon G11 is a thoroughly awesome camera. I got one a couple months ago and love it! It oversaturates daytime colors a bit for my taste though, so I set the MyColors to “Neutral” to dial it back a bit, and often turn the exposure compensation to -2/3 on lighter subjects too.

    Try using the viewfinder for waist-level photography in crowds – you get a child’s-eye view and people don’t have that startle reflex that they do when you hole a camera up at eye level.

  5. A little belated happy birthday! Looks like you have been enjoying yourself London. I think I know where you are in the picture, but I will check back to see if I’m right -the Proms? Watched in on tv and it was awesome. (or was it a week ago, time goes by so fast. Happy B-day for your daughter too.
