Weddings

I don't do them as a rule. But, as I like to do things I don't normally do every now and then, I decided a few years ago that I will do one a year, and this year's  nice summer wedding is now behind me, so you will just have to wait till next year to get married now :)
And, of course, all the best to the newlyweds.

It must be really hard

to be an opening act at a festival (big or small)...
 but at least it gives  you the opportunity to flirt with the photographer a bit.
Things heated up by the time this band got on stage and there were a few who had drunk a bit too much cough syrup by this stage of the evening...
Moveknowledgement were my favourites of the evening
While my least favourite part was when a car parked next to the one I had been (uncomfortably) sleeping in for three or four hours, opened all the doors, blasted the music at full volume and started dancing (I haven't got any photos of this, as I was way to sleepy and grumpy at the time - does this mean I am getting old?)

I thought

the whole idea behind the Anthropocene was that we screw up this planet so badly there is no survival.

A day exactly as it is supposed to be (with abundent photo ops)

It all kicked off with the opening of the Ana Desetnica street theatre festival and its first show of the afternoon. 
(where there was this guy who I think had - in these difficult times - landed himself a well deserved job with the Ministry of Silly Walks - perhaps the only ministry in this downtrodden part of Europe that still actively employs people).
Then I silly walked (inspired as I was) to someplace completely different where I met some people and got handed a beer (At tea time!I mean really! Do people have no shame these days? Unfortunately this can apparently not be avoided as strange things tend to happen to strange people (like myself)). While gently wrapping my lips around the plastic see through container and slowly sipping on the beer, some people around me got trapped in large boxes, while the rest of us were lucky enough to watch on in disbelief as we were entertained by the invading creatures from the underground (who appear to be just like you and me, only with shorter legs).
At some stage I managed to escape these body snatching invaders and bravely made my way to a street on the other side of the river (thinking I will be safe there, as there was no way these short legged people could cross the high waters). And yes, apparently, everybody else believed the same, for there was party and dance on that part of the river.

I can only imagine that these celebrations continued late into the night. But duty called (and I heard that the short legged creatures from the underworld returned to the underworld, so both river banks were safe once again), so I headed for an exhibition opening, where I saw this guy
actually reading the exhibition catalogue at the opening.  Had he not learned anything? Reading is for the beach (if you are an exhibitionist type like this guy clearly is). Hey psssst! There is an actual photo hanging right there, on the wall, right behind you. Turn around. Turn around! TURN AROUND!... Oh, ffs, this is useless. You are not going to turn around are you? Like ever?!!?
I give up. I'll walk away...
and stumble into a lively concert that brought my day to an end.
 (Thanx everyone for making all these photo ops possible - if every day was as good as this, there would be an endless series of good days)

3 performances

(well to be honest 2 performances and 1 concert) second day in a row.

But this time I will post a single photo from the first performance.

As a special treat

I got 3 performances in a single night. This was all down to the Spider slang festival.

1. Ideal
The already almost classic duet of Leja and Teja.

2. Overandoverandoverand…
 Three youngsters I know nothing about. But that will all change.

3. True romance
Oh yes, I sure could do with some. Obviously not with a crocodile, as I am rather old fashioned this way and I prefer a female of the homo sapiens species any day.

(Just to recap: It would be ideal to experience some true romance overanoverandoverand...)

Spent the entire afternoon

and early evening photographing, so I had quite a few photos to chose from, and I opted for this one.
Hope you like it.

If only people

Under the influence

 of the book I am reading at the moment  

I see bodies   

even when photographing 

a dance performance

(Oh, the book is The bang-bang club)

It is always fun

to see someone in a new role (I think we should all try a new role every now and then).
Yo Marko!

Toughy

It is always hard to select a single photo for the blog when I have seen (and photographed) one dance lesson and three short play rehearsals in the same day. In such cases I often opt to do one photo from each, but today I decided to go for the one that reflects how I often feel.

We are back!

Finally! (Now that I have stopped worrying about absolutely everything that I could do wrong as a non-performer).

G2G

This lazy Sunday

it was all about getting familiar with the place, light, moves, and inhaling some dust, next weekend it is all for real.

Short

and sweet reintroduction of my lens and Grega's movements. It was about time, mate.

I've got news

for all of you who were told happiness is a cigar called Hamlet, it is also a play called Hamlet, so why don't you trot down to your local pocket theatre and check it out.

The last

workshop in this series (and now we are looking at the horizon for new challenges). All that is left for us to do is organise the exhibition of the workshop attendees (official opening in Daktari, this Friday evening), and figure out how to fix the things that didn't go as planned during the workshops.
Anyway, see you at the festival opening on Thursday or exhibition opening on Friday.

I remember

my dad would tell me various anecdotes revolving around these guys and after seeing some photos from the 'fun ol' times' I did for a moment regret I was not walking around with a camera already at the time, but immediately afterwards I thought: 'I can do this now, with other peeps', so now I am looking forward to doing some good goofy photos soon.

Bumping into

the right people at the right time, they took my mind off things for a while.

Some people

came to remember
some came to express gratitude
 some came for the rock-n-roll
while some considered it an opportunity to dress up.

By the time you see this photo

you will need to start thinking at which dry cleaner's you have left your opening night suit, pick it up, call your special theatre date, arrange to meet her for a pre-opening night  dinner...
(and it goes on and on and on, doesn't it?)
