Despite the overwhelming indifference to the last lot, here's some more. :smile:

All taken with a Samsung Galaxy S8.

Skids at the Ritz in Manchester at the beginning of June 2017. I've only waited 37 years to see them :rock:

It's ludicrous just how good cameras on phones are now. When I travel now, I never take my DSLR as my phone is more than capable of doing an excellent job on day-to-day "snaps".

Hopefully Apple's next device will catch up with Samsung and LG, as these photos suggest rather better optics than the iPhone's still quite adequate camera.

The Skids !!!!...hoping to see them later this year....great band..first saw them after hearing John Peel play "Charles" one night.it was their second gig in London at the long gone Red Cow in Hammersmith.Looking at a list of Skids gigs on line it was in April 1978 and saw them again twice within the next 3 days when they did 2 nights at the Nashville in West Kensington..probably saw them about a dozen times in 78..seem to remember Stuart Adamson having a rather alluring girlfriend who had green spiky hair !! - well I was late teens at the time and a spiky haired yoblet (as a girlfriend coined it) !...that and how the room at each gig (it was mainly small pubs until the tail end of 78)became a mass pogo pit when they played "Of One Skin" :smile:

A quick update and showing where phones are a bit limited. A DSLR with a 300mm lens might have been better. :smile:

A few of Radiohead at the Emirates Old Trafford Stadium last night. Great gig but due to the nature of the venue, we were a bit of a distance from the stage. As we all know, it wasn't supposed to be at Old Trafford anyway.

Parsley, you won't be disppointed with the Skids this time round. They were really on form and sounded great.
