Waiting the Concert

Posted by Bob (Portland, United States) on 15 August 2016 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

The sky IS the predominant feature of this snapshot. Poorly composed, I think it was hurriedly taken by some teens in the parking lot before their game. My pic is less bright sky; it's in the dark backstage of a hall before a concert at the Oregon Mahler Festival. Orchestra members are pre-concert checking the video set up that shows the conductor's podium. The piece, Mahler's Second Symphony, The Resurrection, is huge. It is scored for large orchestra, the larger the better; chorus; soloists; organ and offstage musicians, thus the need for camera and video for the offstage folks to follow the conductor.

This photoblog is a self-assignment challenge where I take pix based on old vernacular snapshots I buy in thrift or antique stores. Part of the challenge is finding snapshots for less than a buck. The original snapshot is posted on the left and my interpretation/contemporary view is on the right. I do not find an old photo and then dig through my archives to find a good match. The original pic served as a base or starting point. The interpretation may be straight forward or somewhat obtuse.
