Let me explain why I love this photo so much and why I kept it in the first place. The only thing that’s in focus is a person’s hand grabbing Lights’. But I love it because it was the most honest photo I’ve taken in a long time. I watched as Lights reached out and the girl to the side of me grasped her hand. And it wasn’t an “omg there’s a musician I’m going to touch them” type of thing. There was so much in that one movement. They gripped each other and it was as if both sides were saying I’m here for you. The girl didn’t scream or freak out, she just held on calmly while Lights sang as if there was nothing more natural in the world than this one, pure moment. It only lasted a few seconds, but it was long enough for me to catch. And it’s moments like this, those times when artist and fan come together, that keep me coming back to shows.
One special moment captured in a photo with a great story. :)
