Paul Weller, Sydney, August 19 2008

All I can say is, it was worth the wait and was everything I hoped for. I loved the old stuff and the new stuff equally - as Im sure most Weller fans did. If there were those there expecting to re-live Jam days, well, grow up already. If Id have had the dosh, Id have got tickets for every night he was here - it really was that good.

Last year when The Most DH and I went to see The Cure I got such interesting shots with my camera phone, that I thought I would do the same here at Paul Weller....but then decided Id chuck my old Kodak in my purse on speculation.

Long time readers know that I have a love/hate relationship with the Kodak DX6490 - its sssslllllooooowwwww and extremely light hungry - but it does have one hell of a zoom on it....add to the mix that there was going to be some hiking around Newtown to get to the gig, dancing, and a stop-over or two at local 'watering holes'....well - no way would I risk bringing the Canon EOS 400D this time. But man, I sure would have liked to. Imagine the shots I could have got with that!

Meanwhile, the camera phone spazzed out on me. Must've dropped it one too many times....all I got from it is tiny little postage stamp sized Pauls...perhaps I will make a collage of them........

This is the first time I heard of Paul Wleller. I need to read more about him. That's a mighty zoom lens if that's from your camera.
