David is on the third row down, left side, in the left picture.
Chris is on the top row, second head-dot from the right. What? You can't see them?
As I was looking at my bad choir concert shots, it occurred to me that life is like this sometimes. We go to an event mechanically, out of duty, and in the middle of the dark it gets all liht and blurry. I enjoy the music and have a wonderful time, but my memory is a little bit washed out about the pariculars. I have gotten good shots of a dark concert before, when I bring my good camera, adjust the settings just right, and crawl up closer to the stage to get an unobstructed view. Last year, I got some really good pictures of Ben singing in his boy band, Lads in Plaid that way. And I remember some very cool pictures of Alec in his senior ballroom dance concert.
But when I am focusing on getting the good shot, I miss the concert. My pictures are great but my memories are fuzzy. If I sit back and enjoy the show, then my heart is full and I enjoy the evening - but I only have blurry pictures. It's a decision I have to make every time.
And tonight, I filled up my heart with beautiful music and left my photo gallery alone. I think it's better that way.
