This was the view from our seats at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas for Wrestlemania 32. Incredible.
Unfortunately pictures don't do the sheer size of the stadium justice. It's HUGE. You can see it from about 10 miles away!
Dallas, Texas was amazing. Although a large city in the USA the many open spaces and parks make it feel a lot more 'free' than a city usually feels like.
There was much that Dallas had to offer including historical landmarks and old traditions and it was a perfect place to venture to for Wrestlemania.
It's been reasonably quiet on the movie front also, we're booked to see Batman v Superman next weekend which I have been waiting a long time for it seems. We might be going to see 10 Cloverfield Lane this weekend depending on how the other half feels after being unwell.
I'm hoping to get some great shots while in Dallas. The skyline actually looks incredible as you can see from the image above. If I can get anything like this I will be very happy so stay tuned for some photos upon our return. Our friends who are traveling with us have just announced they are due to have a baby this year too which is really exciting so the trip away will be extra special with them!
We recently bought a new point and shoot also for this trip. We got the Canon G7x camera. We had read some great reviews about it and we'd like to Vlog some of the trip for memories and this has a great function for that which is also a great plus.
I will leave it there for this post, I will hopefully post an update once we are back from our trip away!
Today's post is mostly about photography...! I have been waiting weeks now for the evenings to get lighter and Spring to arrive. This past Tuesday was the first evening driving home from work where I could actually see a decent sunset on the horizon around 5pm.
I quickly picked up my camera bag and drove down to our local beach in Bognor Regis. As I got there the sun was significantly lower than it was when I first set eyes on it in the car so the rush down to the sea was on! Thankfully when I got down there the tide was very far out revealing these lovely large rocks which would give me some scale to my shots.
I quickly set up my Joby Gorillapod, attached my camera, which is a Nikon D3300, and took some shots. This was the first time I've really been able to use my Tokina 11-16mm lens also and I have to say the range on this thing is amazing.
The guy can talk on the Mic (which is a big thing in modern day wrestling!), he can certainly wrestle but most of all, you just hate the guy. Which makes him a great heel. Most guys my age who grew up watching wrestling grew up with the Attitude Era in which Babyfaces (good guys!) went against the authority on many occasion, none better than Stone Cold Steve Austin. In this era I grew up loving Austin but also some of the Heels (bad guys) too. Heel Triple H has got to be one of my all time favourite times in wrestling, as is Corporate Rock.
I can't count the amount of times me and my friend have tried to fantasy book the sh*t out of this years Mania, because it means more than ever to both of us! For what it's worth, this is what I currently (February 4th, 2016!) think may happen....
I do think there will be some involvement from legends such as The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Sting and Shawn Michaels, as to what that is though I'm not so certain.
One of the best parts about this trip is seeing Dallas itself, it's not a City that I have ever even thought about visiting but since reading up on different things there are to do there we are all even more excited than ever. Going to AT&T Stadium also will be an amazing experience in itself, the biggest sports arena in the USA and the WWE are hoping to pack in over 90,000 people for the showcase of the immortals.
I am hoping to get some great shots of the city on the camera so look out for that on both Instagram, Flickr and 500px.
LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!!!
With exactly 2 weeks to go until the big day me and the wife are pretty much there with our shopping. It’s great to see so many houses around that have big displays up, what other time of the year do you see so much effort put into decorating your house?
We saw Christmas with the Coopers last week and it was really great. I thought from the way it was starting that it was going to be a bit depressing and there was certainly an underlying story attached to this film but in the end, like most Christmas films, it all turned out well. We haven’t given Krampus a watch because we don’t think it’s our ‘thing’ really, Christmas should be about happy things, not some sort of evil!
Now that it’s a more of a busy time of the year it’s harder to get to the cinema. We still haven’t seen The Good Dinosaur or Bridge of Spies and I have heard good things about both.
It’s the time of year for the office Christmas parties, a time when work colleagues go out and enjoy an evening out together to round off the year. It’s almost like a reward for the work done in the year, it’s just a shame I haven’t left enough holiday to finish work for the year..!
I’ve been listening to Justin Bieber's album on Youtube recently, it’s amazing how much his music has changed, it’s now acceptable (almost) for guys to like his stuff, I got ribbed for liking his early music, probably fairly, but his latest album is great and is definitely worth a listen.
See you next time.
It's that time of year! December is here, lights are up in towns, trees are going up everywhere, it's a lot colder than a month ago, it must mean it's Christmas!
I love Christmas, I get the feeling everyone is a little 'nicer' around the holidays. It's a bit like summer in that respect, the sun does something to people that makes them happier, which is great!
We put our tree up this past weekend, we actually made a bit of a weekend of it (not putting the tree up, that would be ridiculous), we went and did some Christmas shopping on the Saturday and then had Sunday putting the decorations up and of course watching Love Actually! Some might think it's too early but I hate to admit that last year we had it up the last week of November...
Since getting my new DSLR I have become more and more interested in photography. It's always been something I appreciated but not something I had ever delved right into. I have had various positive feedback from my photos since getting it and really, I am still very much an amateur, I have loads to learn still!
Instagram is something I have always had.
