Concert photography. This is, as you know, a common sight when attending a concert or festival these days. I just spent three lovely days filled with music at the Way out west festival in Gothenburg.

It’s interesting that we live in a time when seems to be more important to capture that magical moment for later, than to fully experience it in the moment.
