Monster Mania!

To continue the monster story, as promised, here are a few colour shots of the frenzy that hit Ottawa for four very special days. Thankfully the weather was brilliant.

1. View of Parliament Hill from the sanctuary of Kumo's resting place
2. Kumo was always accompanied by a 10 piece orchestra, four on each tower platform and two on individual cherry pickers.
3. The bass player had his own aerie (the harp was on another cherry picker)
4. Long Ma is escorted down York Street. While the crowds were not extreme at this point, just in front the streets were packed.
5. Roar!
6. Long Ma shows up on the bridge by the Shaw Centre. Note how the folks on the bridge are so focused on the Kumo below them that they did not realize for a few minutes that Long Ma was right behind them!
7. Long Ma checks out the crowd below
8. Kumo is on the move
9. Long Ma is searching for Kumo
10. Long Ma is stressed...

These are excellent photos, Abby. Perhaps the theatre company may want to buy your images.
