The Magic Moment

Every social event has its magic moments – the bride kisses the groom – the champagne bottle hits the bow of the ship – the HINDENBURG touches the mooring mast. and everything after that is just theatre…

There were a few at the GSPA Ball. Possibly more than one camera could capture, but at least we were able to see a few of them. The team from the people’s Photographic Republic left early so if there were bar fights or religious conversions after 10:30 they went unnoticed. Never mind – sometimes the best audience is internal – the applause can continue for days and no-one is disturbed by the noise.

The good thing about public balls is that anything that happens is…public. If you see it, you can notice it, or not, as you please – in contrast to private affairs on private property when someone bursting through the shrubbery shrieking and bleeding seems to demand an inordinate amount of concern and sympathy. PhotoPR card_edited-127




Few restaurants permit one to carry heavy armaments into the dining area and leaving ammunition in the cloak room always invites pilfering.PhotoPR card_edited-91

Of course there are always critics of the social intermingling of different peoples. Prejudices are hard to quell, even if you use a fire hose and a hook. At least at a public affair representatives of different points of view can openly exchange opinions. PhotoPR card_edited-99
