The second evening rehearsal for the Cape Town Military Tattoo 2013

Tonight was the second run-through of the entire show, and the levels of excitement – and stress – behind the scenes were running high. The previous night, I had run out of energy, after a long hot day on my feet, and so I had missed the second half of the show. Tonight, I was determined to stay until the end.

While waiting for the proceedings to start, I was delighted to see my fellow photies of the previous years’ tattoos suddenly appearing in the Kat archway, and walking across the parade ground. We greeted each other jubilantly, compared camera gear, caught up on each other’s lives, and strategised. The two of them have since created two Facebook photo albums, on which they are posting pictures of the show every night: Brent’s photo album and Lorraine’s photo album.

Here are some of mine of this evening’s performance. As always, click on any of the pictures to access the slideshow with captions.

I'd love to hear your views
