On the basis that a picture paints a thousand words, and mindful of the fact that the thousand words are going to have to wait until tomorrow…
(Honestly, I had NO IDEA that I did the “pointy fingers” thing. We live and learn.)
Thanks to everyone who came along to Trafalgar Square, or who watched the proceedings via the web stream, and also to everyone who has left so many lovely comments in various places.
In short: I had THE MOST FANTASTIC, AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, elevating, elating, transformative experience. I’ll try and expand on that tomorrow!
In the meantime: here’s the archived footage, which should be watched in tandem with the streaming audio mix.
Word to the wise: if you find (as I did) that the audio mix lags slightly behind the video stream, just pause and immediately un-pause the video stream. And can I also draw your attention to the green square with the white square inside, to the bottom right of the video window? If you press it, then you’ll get a full-screen version of the video.
If you’d rather not watch the full hour – and really, that’s absolutely fine – then can I suggest that you fast-forward to the final minute, which contains an unplanned moment of pure Comedy Gold.
K’s photos of the event can be found in slideshow form here, or as individual photos here.
My friend Angus has taken some truly fantastic shots, which can be found here. Click on “slideshow”, and then click on “fast”.
I also enjoyed Caroline’s photos, turnesoleil’s photos and videos, Luca’s photos, and the shots of asta grooving along at home.
More words and fewer pictures tomorrow.
