Once upon a long ago (picspam!)

Amazing, the things you unearth when you decide to do a little tidy-up! While still on the hunt for Dad's photo album, I came across these photographs, taken on January 29th, 1979, in Rotterdam Ahoy - my second time seeing Queen live on stage. I thought I'd lost them in a house move aeons ago.

There's a reason why they're all of Brian May: my friend Ingrid and I (who shared the camera between us, so that we could take turns yelling and photographing) counted him as our favourite band member, and so we wouldn't budge from his side of the stage once we'd managed to fight our way there.

I wonder what happened to Ingrid? I haven't seen or heard from her in 30 years...

You had a really, really good view - what an amazing evening it must have been.

I have no doubt that it was, though unfortunately, at this remove in time, I can't recall the particulars of it too clearly anymore. And this despite our solemn oath that we would remember this gig, and all the others we went to over the next few years, forever. Ah, youth!

We did have a good view. And, a really good camera! IIRC, all the fuzzy shots were mine...(the camera was Ingrid's and she had done a proper photography course).
