    fantastic shot and I am not a U2 fan lol but what really got my attention is the respect you show with your image. NOT having it for sale says so much about who you are as a person and It tells me that you have complete respect and not out for the $ glory. Perhaps you were sneaky sneaky ( many of us have done it) but looking at your portfolio and this image, I honestly feel that your work is done for the pure “photographer joy” of getting that great shot.

  • Thank you, loray! I would NEVER sell photos I took of an artist performing. I really did do it just to get the shots for myself and fellow U2 fans to enjoy.

    I love that you snuck a camera into the concert!! I went and saw Eric Clapton and wanted to do the same but I lost my nerve! Great shot ; )

  • Thanks, Tamara! These shots come from the second of two shows in Melbourne. I took my little Nikon Coolpix, which is allowed, to the first show. When we were going in, I studied the security and their search techniques. By the time the second show rolled around, I had figured out how to sneak the DSLR in! It’s not TOO difficult, but if one gets caught, they WILL confiscate the camera until the end of the show!

    The fact that we were down in front in the middle of a HUGE General Admission crowd helped, as well. If I had seen security coming after me, I could have simply melted into the thousands of people behind me and disappeared! LOL!! As it was, they didn’t seem to NOTICE, much less care!

    Ron this whole album of U2 photos is amazing! They are so clear and it’s almost like they are posing just for YOU! :)
    An amazing feat considering you sneaked the camera in AND weren’t standing on the stage!
    WELL DONE. Great work!
