A Gentleman's Sport

WRESTLING.

 

I'd forgotten the thrill of watching wrestling. This was the first time I'd seen wrestling entertainment like this, this being "Lucha Future" at the Brighton Dome. It was a load of fun, the crowd really got into it and some of the moves you get to see are mesmerizing.

 

Totally took the wrong lens. I wasn't expecting to actually take any photos. Going to this reminded me that one of the reasons I love photography is catching those perfect moments. I've recently been spending a lot of time trying to construct images in my own way, images that I feel have a little bit of me in them. But there is something special about going to an event and a lot of those things falling into place so easily and just being able to focus on catching that one little moment, be it a handshake, a glare on someones face or that perfect shot where the stage lights shine through the smoke and backlight the band you're shooting.
