This week I had two surprises.
One was Thursday night when Todd called and asked if I wanted to shoot Chicago and Earth, Wind and Fire at the Garden. I wasn't sure what I should do but decided to give it a whirl since I haven't shot a band in some years. It turned out to be a great show and both groups have more hits than I can remember! Attached are photos of Robert Lamm and Verdine White. These two founding members have been playing with their respective groups for 40+ years! The song list for each group, and the combined sets were amazing. These two groups have combined sales of over 200,000,000 albums/cd's.
The second occurrence has to do with the "found camera" story. What a lesson in the cost of bandwidth! I had no idea how many people were passing along the story of the lost camera (thanks to all of course)! My usual monthly charge is $19.95 for web hosting. Last billing cycle due to increased traffic and over 200,000 hits (somehow registered) my bandwidth was exceeded by 18,950.63 megabytes times $0.02/per mb = $379.01 surcharge!! So much for my pay it forward efforts - they may have bit me! It's like the roaming charges of yesteryear with cell phones! Ouch!
