I just uploaded a bunch of pictures to Flickr, go check them out.
The Cirque people treated us well, I gotta say. No difference between journalists and us as far as they were concerned. Security at the Bell Centre, on the other hand, is another story entirely. Despite explicit permission from the Cirque people allowing us to take pictures (though we were worried for a while), they entirely shut us down about a third of the way through the show. I am happy with what I got, but very disappointed with what I missed and could have brought to the table.
It’s obvious that the pictures taken here are of an entirely different nature than those taken by professional journalists. Both M-C and I agree that we never really want to be doing what they do, get the perfect shot, etc. We hope you like what we put up – we have a little bit of video and audio, interviews and such, that which will be up later today as well. Take care.
