Backstage

By LuzDeNoche
Pascal made me promise to upload something today, now that I finally got round to going through the pictures I took on our trip to Remiremont.
Beyond the theatrical "standing over colour changing led projectors" and things (which are actually permanent fixtures on the main street of the town), there were a few shots of people waiting in the wings or doing more banal things like sitting outside a café...
Probably worth viewing large.
I will almost certainly find time to visit you all this week as well as produce another episode of Northern Lasses as the striking students have announced a blockade of the university.

Welcome back to the site! And can I have this one for my portfolio please? It's wickedly funny, for the contrast of outrageous costumes and the bourgeois banality of the setting. (Sorry, the café owner is probably a friend of Pascal's...) Reminds me of the Ugly Sisters sulking while Cinderella dances with the prince. Or the scene in Father Ted with all the priests made up like Diana Ross, sitting sulking because they're losing the Priests' Look-Alike Competition. Except of course that both those examples are fiction, whereas this has the overwhelming advantage of being for real.
Looking forward to the Northern Lasses...

Glad you're about again, Lucy!
Love the toning and the composition. This resonates with an atmosphere of ennui..........

Bring on the Nothern Lassies Lucy !!
I like this one here,as it is a change to see them not preening and posing. They look bored out their skulls !! Probably wishing they could go home and strip of all their gear,to let some fresh air circulate their bodies.(Well,just a little thought!!) Nice to see you back. !!
