Zirigidum (ASB Gardens Magic Concert Series)


1 - Zirigidum kicked off the first of twenty-one consecutive concerts at the Botanical Gardens Soundshell, as part of the ASB Gardens Magic Series. The music was your typical Brazilian sort of thing, and managed to get the crowd up and wriggling Brazilianically in the first minute of playing...


2 - ...anyway, these concerts always draw hordes of photographers, here Pooria Koleyni lines up his Canon on one of the drummers.  The hat on the bottom left belongs to Alan Raga. Being the photographic purist that I am, I left the speedlite at home, so this is a fine (and rare) example of shooting in colour at ISO6400.


3 - Being in the company of such illustrious fellow photographers, I resorted to photographic experimentation, with zoom blur....


4 - ...compositional reductionism...


5 - ...triangular centrism....


6 - ...bass player graphism...


7 - ...Saxophonist surrealism...


8 - ...and abstraction (bright Saxophones have their uses)...
