I have been to four Linkin Park concerts previously; my favorite being Projekt Revolution of 2007. But, on the 22nd of February, I had what I would consider to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. My best friend won free tickets from a radio station in Sacramento and then proceeded to win the grand prize from that contest. While the seats were center stage in the nose bleed section, my heart was still racing. In my hand I held a most coveted prize: a photo pass.
With my Canon 40D in hand and the photo pass plastered to my shirt, I joined the other photographers in the photo pit for the first three songs of Linkin Park's set. To say that I was happy was an understatement. Having the opportunity to stand two feet away from the stage, sing at the top of my lungs, and take pictures was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
I am so very grateful to have had the experience.
Thank you to the members of Linkin Park, NOW 100.5, and to my best friend for giving me this experience. Its definitely a dream come true.
