It's been a while... and it's time for another update. No joke (have you checked today's date?), I promise! This time I decided it was time to add another category after the mobile travel category - which technically is still part of travel. Simply because I really haven't done much concert photography lately.
In February I traveled to the USA again, to Boston and to Nashville specifically, and I've been to quite a lot of hockey games there. Did I ever mention this here that I like hockey? Well, now you know. It was my third trip over there (third time Boston, too) and every trip so far has included at least one NHL game.
Admittedly I haven't gotten into sports photography now (yet?), but I thought why not add a few impressions of the games? They're obviously all taken with a smartphone, not a DSLR. Especially for those reading this that have never been to an NHL arena.
Here you can see the inside of TD Garden in Boston during a game (Boston Bruins vs Arizona Coyotes). It's not my favorite arena, but since it's a) a relatively old team and b) they share the arena with the local NBA team the Boston Celtics, you can see all the banners in the rafters (retired numbers, Stanley Cup banners etc.). My favorite arena so far, however, would be the following. I might be biased, because I've been to a total of 7 games there already.
Bridgestone Arena, home of the Nashville Predators. My favorite team :)
Besides those two arenas I've also been to a college hockey game during this trip and saw Boston University play New Hampshire University at Agganis Arena in Boston (check my USA album). It's a very different atmosphere.
So, while this isn't concert photography, they usually do have concerts in those arenas as well. In a way it still fits to the original concept of my site.
My next update here might include more photos of the recent trip.
Until then, see you next year?
Well that might've been a joke :)
