there was a specific reason why i borrowed that telephoto lens. that reason would be this -
(i uploaded a ton here if you happen to be interested)
oh yes. lifehouse at the ventura county fair.
i don't think words could really explain how awesome they are live. it's just a lot more amazing than a recording. the emotion and passion that they (especially jason) play with is just really awesome to see. love it when jason gets all into it...at the end of the last song, he was on his knees from the emotion. wow.
i'd always liked lifehouse, but i didn't *love* them until i saw them live for the first time back in june. we went to that concert out of teenybopper-ness, but i think i was really converted into a fan upon hearing them live. there's this depth i saw that went beyond what i'd heard before...and although jason wade is definitely easy on the eyes...there was so much more to him.
this concert was even more amazing than last time (that might have something to do with the fact that they weren't the opening band). we got there semi-late...camped out in line for 3 hours...sat in the 5th or 6th row, on the left side of the stage. not bad. i was standing on the chair for about half of the concert because i'm short and i can't see...until security yelled at me to get off. by the encore, i was back on the chair though. i totally lost my voice. my throat still hurts. the atmosphere was awesome. loved every minute of it. i can't pick the highlight of the night, because each song in the set was, in its own way, amazing.
can't wait til next time (LA county fair, here i come).
here are some random fair photos. i didn't really take any, because i really didn't walk around the fair at all.
i really need to sleep now. just wanted to finish up them photos.
have a good one :)
