I love living in this wonderful city, and there's so much to see every time I head out whether it's a weekend exploration or, as on Tuesday night, a lovely trip to the ballet. I spent some Christmas money on a ticket to see Matthew Bourne's production of Swan Lake at Sadler's Wells and it was a magical evening. There's nothing like the excitement of slipping out of work early and hopping a tube into town to go to the theatre... Plus it's a really incredible show. In fact last night was my second viewing. I went a few years ago and fell in love with it. It's unique: elegant, violent, funny and heart-rending.
I go to the theatre quite a bit because I cannot resist the allure and the glamour; the escapism and the sheer thrall of it. But I don't often write about it here or scrap about it because you aren't allowed to take pictures in the theatre (and fair enough, really). So I set out on Tuesday with the deliberate intention of getting some photos from the evening's outing on the principle that if you look about you enough, there's always a photo that can be...graphed?
P.S. I don't usually take many photos in the portrait orientation and a lot of that is because they don't display on the blog very well. So I made a point of only snapping portrait shots on Tuesday night and I love pairing them to show detail and wider shots together in a way that still gives me a landscape composition overall.
P.P.S. I love photography!
