From 20 to 22 November 2008, the Cape Town Military Tattoo was staged at the Castle of Good Hope in central Cape Town, as in previous years.
I have been sorting through the photos I took from the spectators’ stands that year, and thought it would be nice to put them up on the blog. I found it really challenging to get good photos, though, so many of them turned out blurry – low light, fast-paced action on the arena, a fairly slow focusing camera, and my own ignorance with using more manual settings on my Canon S3 IS meant I wasn’t getting the shots I so desperately wanted.
In the end, as in the previous year, I took some video clips instead, and managed to extract some reasonably good frames from those. So yes, I know they ain’t superb quality or high resolution, but I do hope that they will at least convey some of the excitement of the evening!
