Concert Audience... by vignouse

Concert Audience...

...Covid 19 style.

The concert season is in full-swing at Paimpont Abbey: this is the somewhat surreal sight of some of the audience watching tonight's concert by Morgan of Glencoe - a Celtic Harpist... and the only person in the Abbey not wearing a mask!

On black is even more surreal!
Great on Black. So envious, we have no concert or theatres open yet.

@judithdeacon It's a double-edged sword - as the sacristan of Paimpont Abbey it's my responsibility to see that the social-distancing rules are observed. The group of friends in the foreground is together but separated from the main audience by several metres!

like seeing those masks

Not sure I would be comfortable in that setting.
Looks great on black.

Great shot! Yep, the new norm. I just hope it ends soon!

Somehow, this is both surreal and unnerving. A true image of the times.

Love the light on everyone’s faces. I appreciate the capture of our current reality, no matter how much I wish it were different

This is our life, for all of us. I fear it will not improve until the hardcore who don't/won't wear masks realise their cupidity and irresponsibility to the human race :-(

A sign of the times. Our theatres and concert halls are still closed.
August 6th, 2020  
wow
August 6th, 2020  
Fabulous light!

Now this is a new concert view.

Amazing capture depicting our current status! Nothing like this open here as we go back into stage 3 restrictions with masks this time. Well captured :)

A good piece of reportage

@s4sayer You have a point, Margo, but wouldn't place all the blame on them. Politicians make the decisions and must take a fair share of the blame. I'm sure that's as true in France as in the UK. The scientific evidence re. masks is not entirely for or against. I find that people who wear them are more likely to ignore social distancing so they scare me as they get ever closer to me, even if I too am wearing one.

Surreal capture

how wonderful that a concert is allowed to happen

Until a vaccine or effective treatment comes along I guess this will be a more common scene.

That does look very odd _ yet they still look like they are sitting quite close together...we haven't got to this stage yet sadly.
August 6th, 2020  
Great light...However, it's abnormal to cover two of our God-given five senses, not seeing expressions is also sad...just my humble opinion.
August 6th, 2020  
That you have a concert season is wonderful - a fantastic photo of an extraordinary sight.
August 6th, 2020  
Incredible light. It reminded me of Rembrandt's painting "Anatomy Lesson" - probably because of these masks. The situation is very awkward: many elderly people take off their masks during the concert.
August 6th, 2020  
I like the light on the people. It seems the people are in close groups but perhaps they are living units and/or the photo only makes them look like they are sitting close together.

True Zeit-Geist picture...

I understand the importance of and am in total approval of social distancing as well as masks but wish that it weren't necessary. One can dream that we well overcome.

Stunning color on black!!

Hopefully this kind of sight will soon be just a distant memory! A poignant image really, and a situation created by humans.
