Day 18: In the pit

January 18, 2013: In the pit. Today’s the day of one of my favourite events of the year – the Big Day Out music festival. Temperatures hit 45°C (113°F) today and, in spite of consuming 10 cups of water, a further bottle of water, a bottle of Sprite and two bottles of ice tea, I dropped 1.5kg (3.5lb) in pure sweat (yes, I weighed myself when I got home).

I’m aware that I’m dressed like a clown, but that’s the price of being able to inhabit the photography pit, which essentially puts me right on the stage for every performance. This year’s highlights included Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grinspoon and The Killers (although they refused to allow photography of any kind).

It’ll take me a few days to parse through the several hundred photos I took, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a photo I took today at the festival that’s completely unrelated to music. Absolutely thrilled with it.
