While I was in Wheeling over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to watch The Rustic Mechanicals perform Romeo and Juliet four different times, including three performances presented exclusively for public school students and teachers. During the third student performance, I took about four hundred pictures, half of which I deleted and half of which I kept, cropped, and edited, including the ten I’m including in today’s post.
(Yes, I know they’re all of Romeo and Juliet, but that was the only way that I was ever going to keep from going completely overboard sharing snapshots of the performance.)
The pictures aren’t my best work as a photographer (mainly because I couldn’t use a flash during the show). Despite their imperfections, though, I think they still capture the emotion and energy of the entire performance – and I am incredibly blessed not only to have helped make it happen but also to have been there, sitting in the audience and watching it as it happened.
