A couple of weeks ago, Elton Lee, a really excellent Elton John impersonator, came to do a show at our country club. He is so convincing, as he not only looks like Elton, but also walks, talks, sings and plays piano just like the real one. There was just one problem for me. We had awful seats, and although only two rows from the front, we were on the wrong side of the stage, so I couldn’t see him playing the piano, which for me was very important. On top of that, I had a tall guy with a rather big head sitting right in front of me.
The bass guitarist, the guy in the pork pie hat, stood in my line of sight for quite a lot of the performance, until someone in the front row complained that they couldn’t see through him. He looked a bit put out, but moved back a bit. Don’t you love Elton’s blurry feathered outfit, and those shoes!?
The huge rose-tinted glasses he was wearing, once belonged to the real Elton, as did this Teddy Bear mascot.
The excellent drummer was a bit of a blur too, but his mascots were all smiles.
The piano was just a tad garish for my liking. I think I’ll stick to my unadorned one.
As Elton left the stage, I thought I could maybe get a good shot of him on his own, but it was not to be. He didn’t even pause, and was gone in a blur of feathers and platform soles.
No flash photography was allowed, and when I looked at my iPhone pics afterwards, I almost trashed the lot, but didn’t. I must have known that WP was going to come up with the ‘Blur’ challenge. 🙂
