Last week my wife and I went to see Prince perform at the United Center in Chicago. The 54 year-old musician can still rock and roll and it was easily one of the best concerts I had been to.
After the show, I was thinking about how I had gone to a handful of concerts this year, which is something I don’t normally do. For whatever reason, I’m not a big concert guy. I love music and I enjoy supporting musicians I like, but I just don’t hit a lot of concerts.
Earlier this year I had taken in Rodrigo y Gabriela at the Chicago Theatre. I brought my camera with me and easily got lost in taking pictures. The first few songs of the show, I was snapping away at pictures, while most others were deep into the music. Since then, I’ve really tried to separate things that should be enjoyed without a camera, and things where a camera should be utilized.
