I had never been to this pub before. The so-called old city only recently came back to life. The old part of the city had always been occupied by drug users and dealers and brothels. When I was young the main topic of conversation was about a brothel called "Café Concerto". Only about ten years ago the city began promoting cultural initiatives and events, backing local bands and pubs. As a result, the old city is now very much alive. It is not as alive as the beachside, though.
There was this local band and the lead singer is a friend of ours. My wife and I were I invited this pub to see the band's live performance on their new single. There was I with my camera in hand trying to capture nice moments.
Girls having fun! They were very much enjoying the whole thing. The girl on the right is a belly dance teacher. She works at the same school where my wife works.
One of my wife's aerial silk student.
I was a little worried about the dim conditions when I arrived. I did want to avoid ISO 3200 at any cost. You know it simply doesn't go well with my camera! Fortunately, I managed keep ISO below that and even though some shots were actually a bit dark they could be easily post processed later without killing the image quality.
I absolutely love photography. It is doubtlessly one of my great passions. The feeling you're on the hunt for the right shot, the shot that could perfectly exemplify the essence of that moment or that event. It is magical and I truly love that.
I like this type of picture. She was completely unaware when I took that shot. She is the lead singer's girlfriend and one of the owner of the school where my wife works.
He was thanking everyone when I took this picture. I had never seen him singing before. I need to say that I loved the songs. I never thought he was such a great musician. Mega talented indeed.
