Vesna Zornik - Katalena

Katalena played in Cvetličarna. This was simply a wonderfull night and great concert. I have seen them many, many times, but the band keeps suprising me every time i see them. Altough my camera kept sending me the err99 every 5 shots (the only things that helps is to quickly open the battery tray and reset) i managed to get a few "working portraits" of Vesna Zornik, the main vocal and smiling face of Katalena.

The Queen

I am still here, just busy. Last week has been quite crazy with following the Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to Slovenia. As always, protocol was tight and not much access was given to those outside assigned pools, except during her Ljubljana walk between the crowds. I was lucky to get a few pools, and was able to capture some nice shots all over. Watching the Queen just few feet away during state dinner at Brdo was also interesting and altough 60 guests came to greet her i managed to take few moments just to observe. They ended quickly as i was there to work not observe. Well an interesting experience and if compared to GW Bush visit earlier this year, so much more relaxed as there were no military in the fields around airport, no snipers on top of buildings etc. I will also remember this visit as i had bday on 22nd and it is not often that the Queen of England is in front of you on "your " day :) Now back to normal life :)

Living Colour - really cool guys

I always somehow missed Living Colour performing in our little town. Yesterday i didn't. They were back in action and Cvetlicarna was packed. Amazingly how energetic their show is, great playing, and really cool guys. Just after the concert, almost all of them ran out to the fans and hanged out with them. I miss this so much with other bands of their size. Only after they all signed CDs, took pictures and so, they returned and talked to press. All 4 of them were present in an interview room, which is also very rare in such occasions. This allowed me to shoot some nice portraits and group shots during their interviews. It seems all the light that was gone from Iggy's concert came back with Living Colour :)
