Opening mima

By oldgreyheron      
Today (Saturday - hadn't realised midnight had passed) was the grand opening of Middlesbrough's pride and joy - the new Art Gallery "mima". The opening was preceeded by a great musical firework display, and was a proud moment for the town as it upgrades itself.

This was my first outing with the new 400D and all was "shooting from the hip". This image captures for me some of the combination of emotion and pride that comes with the event.

Better large, thanks for dropping in!

(Have you spotted the typo in the "lens used" box - I can't edit that, but you know what I mean!)

Happy new camera Mike, Lovely shot, Terry and myself were down at Paddys just packing away our gear when we noticed this fantastic display in the distance, If only we'd known this was going on We'd have seen you there.

Thanks to all - I'm at the bottom of a new learning curve, and fireworks without a tripod were not a good start. Dan and colleagues - your professionalism and advice are gratefully appreciated!

Very impressive, Mike - especially for handheld. Great reflections in the glass, and I envy you this wonderful cultural addition.
