    WARNING: long intro rant...skip to pictures if thats your desire


    these are the pictures that turned out decent from my trip to the coachella fest. all shot with my digital point and shoot. i definately would have brought the film slr, but they stated no cameras with removable lenses (although i found many people walking around with their dslr's...steams me up inside)

    it was rather difficult to get any shots whatsoever of the performances, but i did manage a few. on a side note, i realized why to use digital zoom - you can focus more clearly AND it usually shoots at higher speeds with larger apertures. also, the 2 second self timer is great. i got many more shots like that than with the normal immediate shutter

    note to self: next time bring a string tripod



    now on to the pictures - chronological order if youre wondering

    i know this is a terrible picture, but i thought it was worth mentioning. being in the crowd, i lost track of where Peaches went. then i heard a bunch of yelling. she was climbing up the rafters pretty far without any harness or whatnot, still singing. i snapped one before she started to climb down

    the mass exodus to the parking lot after the last day of the festival. it was kinda funny because EVERYBODY was trying to get a picture of this. then some guy yelled out "HOW ABOUT ONE PERSON TAKES A PICTURE AND SENDS IT TO EVERYBODY ELSE!!! EVER HEARD OF FLICKR!?!??!?!"

    those are the ones that turned out better than the rest.

    c&c, storytelling, and picture responses welcomed

    since it was a music and arts festival, they had quite a few installments. one was the big metal spider (in the sunset shot), another was the tesla coil (lightning), there was a firebreathing uhh... thing, that red hut, umm, those lights behind the tesla coil were aimed at each other in the sky over the mainstage, just a bunch of stuff really

    if youre interested, i think theyre still posted on the coachella website
