Ben Hur at the O2 Arena {Millennium Dome} London, UK.
The Chariot Race
Camera Nikon D700 with 24-120mm Lense.

It was a wonderful privillege to be taken to the O2 Arena to view Ben Hur by my son and his friend. I also took along my friend Wole Bolade.

After reading the terrible reviews of the show, I was wondering if we’d enjoy it. I love the old film with Charlton Heston which was made 50 years ago now. I’m 50 this year:-). Well, I can tell you I was blown away with the production. Some things could have been done better, but the overall impression I got, as did my companions, was that it’s a quality production. With an obvious amount of creative genius and skill.

The Chariot Race Like most people, I was especially looking forward to the Chariot race, and contrary to reviews, it was exciting, and very well done considering the constraints of modern health and safety.

    Great capture Don.

  • Hi Richard, you ought to take Catherine along, you’d love it. Try and get a little close though because they don’t let you use a zoom lense. I think I got away with it because he didn’t let me finish when I was asked about the size of my lense, I only got out the 24mm:-) and the security guy said, Oh thats OK anything upto 35mm is fine.

    Very impressing capture Don – like being taken back in time .o)

  • Hi Kira, it really brought back some wonderful memories for me, I love the Ben Hur story {Big Sop that I am} and have watched the film countless times. My son bought the tickets as soon as he heard about it for my birthday treat, we had a great evening together. Thank you very much for viewing and commenting, I really appreciate it. Regards, Don.
