Spent the last night in London at Wembley Arena – The last show of The Who, Quadraphenia Tour……I believe they were filming for a DVD……Home today…..

What a way to end this week – The Rolling Stones in Hyde Park, London – great show – one of the few bands that can pull this off. Weather was perfect – music was excellent…. photographed from my seat using my Olympus with the 75MM Zuiko Lens…..Can’t go much past ISO 800 but the show started in daylight so it all worked out….I particularly liked the video screen design – like a collage of the band at all times…..helped tell the visual story….

Stay tuned for Beach Boys and Paul Young tomorrow……this week in London has been packed with music in the park – they had Bon Jovi on Friday and still another week of music coming…..

Unfortunately I am back in New York on Tuesday….
