Here are my pictures from Chicago 5/10 finally. These aren't all of them, but they are the better ones. Really should have changed my battery so the date would have been correct(it tends to jump dates when battery is low) and the flash might have been brighter. But I still think I got some decent ones from where I was standing :o)

Aww, that's a shame that you might miss this tour. I had to do everything in my power to get to Chicago, which i'm in debt for and didn't even get to meet Bono lol.

LOL, I told myself I was going to go even if I had to sell blood! I pretty much just put it all on my credit card and now have to work at paying it off. I also went during finals week and paid for that dearly. I guess U2 was just more important to me hehe.

Thanks for posting the pics! :)

Was this a film camera or digital? At your distance, a flash probably wouldn't have made a difference (in fact, we will have ours turned off). If it is a film camera, 800 speed is usually good for these kind of things.

Yep it was a film camera. I was thinking the same thing at my distance the flash wouldn't have mattered much. The zoom was great but then you have to worry about the lighting. Next time i'm going to try 800 speed as I only had 400 for Chicago. I'm looking into a digital though for the next few shows possibly, but it's all over my head lol.

Thanks bunches for posting these here! Brilliant! Wondered if you'd mind if I used one or two of the Edge shots on the Edger Website, The Edge of the World. You will, of course, be fully credited. If not, it's totally cool. I was at that show, but i was so far away, any pics I would have taken would have taken would not have been too fantastic. I took a few on the 12th with my camera phone, but they're pretty rubbish. Glad I can rely on some die hards to capture those kodak moments close up!

Hehe, sure go ahead and take any that you like :o) I was really surprised at how well some of the pictures turned out, especially of Edge.

You rawk! Incidentally, is saltwater_kisses yer zootop/interference name? Sounds familiar. I'm Blue_Skies (or Bluesy) on both. Haven't been around much on Zootopia since they changed it. Was once a permanent fixture in the Edge folder, though *g*

If you haven't checked out the Edge site, the link is in my user info. Thanks a lot for permission to use em! :O)

Aha! Knew I knew that from somewhere! I'm also Blue_Skies over on u2midwest.

Oh, and btw, there's a secret lab on the Edge site...if you go into Edge Nest and find out what's under the beanie, it'll lead you there. I had a lot of fun working on it, but sadly, haven't updated since he and Morleigh got married several years ago....I'm a bad Edger...I know lol

Allo allo! I rarely post on any of the boards, but I do a lot of lurking...

And yes, its entirely possible to be a bad Edger when one spends 7 straight months building up a monster of a site, then updates rarely lol

Haha...I was JUST listening to Discoteque, speaking of boomcha...You know, I dunno why Pop did so poorly. I admit I wasn't big on when it first came out, but truly, its a damned good album!

I don't post much on it either, mostly a lurker also and come out once in a while.

I see lol, yeah 7 months building a site and then not updating regularly...hehe...you naughty Edger :o)

I LOVE the video for Discoteque!! And Pop is a great album for sure. I'm one of the strange ones that liked it from the start :o)

Mind if I friend you?

Go right ahead! I was about to ask you the same...incidentally, I have another lj account, ohmecorazon , which is politically/socially driven...lot of Bono's causes and whatnot, if you wanna add that as well. Up to you, chick :o)

OMG, the video for Discoteque puts me in hysterics...SOOO great. And god, I lav Edge's mirrored guitar...

So great to meet cool peeps on lj 8oD

The Discoteque video is just over the top and I LOVE every bit of it...especially the BOOMCHA part :D

It is really neat to meet cool people on lj, especially fellow U2 fans!

Have you seen her in "In America"? GREAT, touching film about an Irish family trying to make due in America, despite being touched by a huge tragedy...I really recommend it *thumbs up*

Yep I saw it a while back, it was a sad movie but a good one. It was funny because when I was watching it my friend saw it too and she actually recognized her from the U2 video.

Nice shots.

I second what the other poster said- flash won't help in that situation. U2's lighting is really powerful, and generally more than what you need, with a decent ISO.
