Walking with Dinosaurs

DSCN7949

I just saw Walking with Dinosaurs live at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. The show was amazing. The life size dinosaur puppets looked and moved great. I was impressed by how fast and precise the puppetry was despite the massive scale. Also, all of the sounds came from the dinosaur's mouths which was extra cool. We were sitting three rows from the front, so when the full grown Tyrannosaurs Rex walks to the edge of the stage, lifts her head back and roars my chest chest rumbled. Walking with Dinosaurs is now on a North American tour, you must catch it when it comes to your town.

They did not allow flash photography during the show - most people ignored that request. I set my camera to the night setting, and got some nice non-flash photos. I'll share some the better ones in future posts.
