And it was hot! 100+ degrees hot. And of course the day we left, it cooled down to 80. Ah well.
What I love about music festivals is the energy. Even in 100+ degree weather, people are still dancing and singing (although much of it is under much influence of other things). For me, the music can take me over, bring goosebumps, smiles and even tears.
I love capturing those moments as well, but unfortunately, no big cameras are allowed. (Although I did see plenty around so I'm sure people smuggled them in.)
Still, there were plenty of things to take photos of with my Ai-phone. It was also a fun challenge to try and find different ways of capturing some of the scenes there.
The art installations were just fantastic. Colorful, peculiar, creative, and just plain cool.
I thought this one was fun. It was from the guys over at the Do LaB. It reminded me of Marge and Bart.
I took a million shots of the balloons. They just made me happy.
And of course there was the ferris wheel. There are a million photos on Instagram of Le Grande Roue, some of them really creative, like this and this. I'm particularly fond of the one I took :-)
There are a lot of cool pics over on Instagram of the Coachella festivities. Feel free to follow me at ailoves to see my favs!
