The otherwise quiet and peaceful Castle of Good Hope in central Cape Town was a hive of activity on the weekend, with the different acts rehearsing for the Cape Town Military Tattoo 2010.
If you haven’t booked tickets yet, go to Computicket and do so now – you’ll regret it if you miss this spectacular event!
After a busy Saturday afternoon (see photos of the rehearsals here), I was back at the Castle on Sunday morning, and spent the entire day and most of the evening behind the scenes, absorbing the sense of anticipation and excitement, taking photographs, waiting for things to happen, chatting with people, running up and down steps, taking more photographs, waiting a bit more, grabbing a bite to eat every now and then, drinking lots of water because of the heat, discussing ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings with my fellow ‘photies’ Brent and Lorraine, walking around the arena looking for good vantage points, and yes, taking more photographs. I loved every moment of it! 😀
Here are my photos of Sunday’s daytime rehearsals, followed by some pics of the evening’s run-through.
